Multidisciplinary is a keyword in Human Powered Vehicle racing. That is why the Human Power Team consists of 3 important parts:
- The TU Delft part who is responsible for designing and building the vehicle
- The VU Amsterdam part who focus on the human part. This means they select and train the cyclist, but also research into things like ergonomics and power delivery
- The cyclists who can focus completely on getting ready for a record level performance on 1 discipline
The team consists mostly of members who spend their free time doing this, but some teammembers can contribute to the team as a part of the University curriculum.
