Full fairing for recumbent by Derk Thijs and Bram Moens

14 January 2014

This very fast recumbent fairing, also designed and build by Derk Thijs and Bram Moens, unfortunately didn’t fully exploit its record potential. Only the 543 km long non-stop race from Trondheim to Oslo in 1997 was won by Bram Moens in 13 hours and 46 minutes.
‘Funny’ detail is that during the race, when it became apparent that Bram would be going to win the race by superior force, the official regulation was swiftly changed. The result being that the first place and the attached price money went to the first finishing conventional racing bicycle! Since Bram’s ‘recumbent victory’ recumbents are banned from the event.
