Welcome to The
Minnesota Human Powered Vehicle Association
Annual Human Powered Ice Race World Championship
Despite being delayed a day, due to weather, we had on of our best turnouts ever, with 27 entrants.
Many thanks to those who helped with course preparation, including a
team of 11 students from Grove City College in Pensylvania.
Also to those who helped with staging and timing the events.
It's a lot colder standing around starting, timing or flaging riders than it is racing.
to St Thomas Academy who not only provided a warming house
and toilets, but also a tractor with 6 foot snow blower and a plow. The tractor
left about 1/2 of snow on the ice which was easilly cleared by about 2 dozen shovelers.

There are still a few bugs to worked out before I can post the results.

page added for child sized recumbents
If you know of any other small 'bents, I'd be glad to add them.
Rides; Since 2001, most MnHPVA rides are scheduled on short notice and posted to members of the RecumbentsMN eMail list. We find that we get more people willing to lead rides this way, with rides nearly every week. We usually get a better turnout than when the rides were scheduled months in advance. Major rides, like the Spring and Fall rides, Lance's Corn Roast and the Harvest Moon ride will continue to be placed on the "Coming Events" page well in advance.
