Human Powered Vehicle Team Finishes In Fifth
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Human Powered Vehicle team finished in fifth place during the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge held this past weekend in Reno, Nev.
The vehicles were judged on design and safety, and in sprint and endurance races against 12 teams from across the country. The Tech team, which designed its bike so riders sat in a recumbent position, competed in the single rider events.
The team placed first in the competition’s design component, 11th in sprint races and sixth in the endurance races.
