Matt Weaver
The Matt Weaver Team
For 2002, California engineer Matt Weaver is refining his Kyle Edge video camera navigated "speedbike" streamliner which in 2001 garnered him the 2nd fastest time in history by clocking a speed of 78.02 mph (125.5 kph).  Matt is also looking for sponsors to allow him to build a new bike based on his extensively natural laminar flow aerodynamic theories that he feels will ultimately result in a quantum leap in speeds.

Matt is the only contender who has designed, built and will race his own streamliner, placing him at a disadvantage in terms of time needed to train for the event and get comfortable in the bike. Though disadvantaged, Matt is widely recognized as the technological leader in this race and this may be enough to give him the edge he will need.

July 31 Update
Matt Weaver has been training hard. Matt Weaver raced one of Tim Brummer's Lightning M5s in the USCF National Championships TTs out in the Western USA, and was on a pace that would have given him one of the fastest times of the day, but his chain jammed about a mile from the finish.
