Team Cygnus has exciting plans for the coming year.
Jan is planning to have a serious go at breaking both the 12 hour record and the 24 hour record. And Jan-Marcel is aiming for the absolute Human Powered Speed record that is momentarily held by Sebastiaan Bowier (Human Power Team Delft & Amsterdam) with a speed of 133,78 km/h.
To realise these plans we will again be working very hard in the coming months. As opposed to some of the other teams, we are not supported by a university. We are urgently searching for some extra financial means so we will be able to have a bit more financial breathing space.
You can donate by using one of the options below.
You will receive a "supporter of Team Cygnus" t-shirt and get updates in your mail box.
Besides the t-shirt and the updates, you are also welcome to watch during our testing days.
You are a real fan! This option is for the t-shirt, the updates in your mail box and the chance to watch during testing days. On top of that you will also get the opportunity to have a go in the Cygnus Alpha during one of our testing days.
Of course other ways of contributing financially are also possible. This can, for instance, be shown by having your name on our bike.
Team Cygnus has developed a fully faired recumbent bicycle that can compete with the fastest recumbents in the world. The main goal is to use an optimum man-machine combination to break world records. The Cygnus team consists of technical specialists from various disciplines. Between them they have many years of experience with fully faired recumbents both in racing and in designing. All Cygnus team members are racers at the highest level. Every year they compete in national and international competitions such as Battle Mountain, the European Championship, the World Championship, and the Michigan Human Powered Speed Challenge, but they also attempt to break records on the tracks of RDW, DEKRA and Opel.
