The Human Power Team Delft has found two riders: Jan-Willem Gabriëls and Sebastiaan Bowier. Jan-Willem is a former Olympic silver medal winner in the Dutch rowing team and has now started training for the record attempt. 

Training on a RaptoBike low racer recumbent

Since Jan Willem had never ridden a recumbent before, the team decided it would be wise to learn how to control a recumbent at speed.

Sebastiaan is a seasoned recumbent racer and surprised the entire team on the test bike.
