Pretty sure this wasn't already posted.

It appears to be powered by both leg and arm pedals, but pretty interesting.

Now THIS is an application where every gram counts... how much does that super record carbon group weigh again?

Cool,

Both hand and foot powered, wonder what gear ratio they're using?
And, how the heck did they convince those folks to stand in the middle?

More like human powered hovercraft, since they never got out of ground affect.
