Trafalgar Park, Nelson

Sunday, 16th September, 2007

Overview

This is an annual HPV event taking place in Nelson.

Designed to complement the Human Powered Challenge held the following month in Christchurch, the Nelson TT consists of a series of three events, where various attributes of both the rider and the machine can come to the fore.

Event Structure

DEVIL TAKES THE HINDMOST

A circuit race where the slower riders in the field get dropped off, at the rate of one per lap, until there is only one rider left.

500m DRAG RACE

This is (nearly) one lap around the track, and it’s not only about speed but acceleration as well.

ONE HOUR ENDURO

Open to individuals as well as to teams of riders. Le Mans style start, 1 hour lap race, most laps in an hour wins, with bonus laps awarded to those carry cargo – in the form 1-litre bottles of water, that need to be collected during the first 15 minutes of the race.
