Apologies if it has been mentioned elsewhere, but you can follow Graeme's progress at the human-powered land speed record in Battle Mountain, Nevada here - http://www.humansinvent.com/#!/tags/cycling/

The official WHPSC page is here - http://www.recumbents.com/wisil/whpsc2013/speedchallenge.htm

They're pretty slow with the updates but there is lots of good geekery to be found on the site.

I also found this via their forums - http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5346183/events/2388331 they're broadcasting live feeds from each session and have some earlier videos available to watch. All fairly amateurish Smile

And the man himself has been posting updates on his site - http://obree.com/obree-news.html

A piece for BBC Technology by Richard Moore is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24015622 and I think the Daily Record has someone out there.

Only 3 lots of runs left and riders are having to put their names into lucky dip draws to get places because of the weather delays Crying
