Manchester Medley HPRA HPV and recumbent bicycle races
Manchester Medley HPRA Racers
A Beautiful racing weekend was in store for us for the annual recumbent races in North Manchester,Indiana. Temps were perfect, in the upper 70s, and winds were low. Races were held at the N. Manchester high school on August 16th and 17th, 2008. Race director Jeff Hunn arranged a series of events that left us all tired and happy.

Race Results
Faired class racers and trikes line up for the 30 minute race.

 Garrie Hill goes fast in the Go-One.
 Jane Hunn zips by during the 30 minute race on her trike.
 Theron Hill races the WAW Velomobile.
 Garrie in the very pretty Go-One again. While this may not be the fastest velomobile, it's the best finished one I have ever seen.
 Steve Wood came out from Texas to race one of Garrie's trikes.
Chris Burkhart from Washington, DC, races his ultra-low Greenspeed trike. 
 Dennis flashes by in the Barracuda.
 Chris passes on the front straightaway.
Lowboy Chris Cortez  passes Jane.
 Rich Myers blasts past in Gee Bee Moby Blue.
Later, the trikes did a race in the parking lot, with lots of sharp corners marked off by cones.  It was great fun to watch. Dennis Grelk on the Hase trike led most of the race, and Chris Burkhart stayed hot on his tail. This corner was the most exciting, with Dennis lifting his inside wheel on almost every lap. Eventually Chris Burkhart wiped out at this corner, then rolled his trike at the next big sweeper, so he ended up finishing 3rd after Chris Cortez.
