On Thursday morning, Sept 17th, Todd Reichert set a new Men's 200M record of 85.71 mph in Team AeroVelo's ETA.
The new record is 2.58 mph faster than the 83.13 mph record set by Sebastiaan Bouwier of HPV Team Delft in Velox 3 on September 14th, 2013.
On Friday evening, Sept 18th, Todd set another record at 86.50 mph in ETA.
On Saturday evening, Sept 19th, Todd went even faster, recording 86.65 mph. (139.45 kph)
Todd contacted me in January of 2014 because he was having some knee problems that were preventing him from training. I ended up doing a complete refit on his training bike which included a lot of changes to his shoes and feet (see previous posts of Todd's knee tracking before and after his fit.) I also consulted on the design and fitting of the ETA record breaking bike.
I received an email from Todd last week,
I just wanted to let you know that we've succeeded in crushing the human-powered speed record at 86.65 mph!!
I wanted to thank you for all your help and support with the bike fitting last year. I went through this entire training season without any knee pain on the bike, and I think a huge part of that was due to the fitting work that we did together!

Thank you again!
Congrats again to the team and I wish them continued success in all their endeavors, Fitt1st is proud to have contributed to this world class accomplishment
