International Velomobile Championship
The International VeloMobile Championship is a velomobile racing championship.
The International VeloMobile Championship began in rather mundane circumstances. It originated in 1985 when two friends met in a suburban carpark in Carran. One friend brought a racing bicycle, whereas the other brought a borrowed velomobile, that he had modified to be faster. They had a race in which the velomobile won. The popularity of using velomobiles in bicycle races in Auleus then exploded and by 1987 the inaugural race specifically for velomobiles took place, an hour-long event, that eventually was shortened to 45 minutes after a small accident, around a circuit marked out by cones in the Carran Stadium car park. This proved massively popular and for the next season in 1988 it expanded nationwide and was dubbed the Aulean Velomobile Cup or AVC this included the inaugural 24 Hours of Port Duffy. During the early years, the Cup was dominated by the North Galanta Primary School. In 1992 the Cup expanded to become the All Antarephian-Tarephian Velomobile Championship after absorbing the Tarephian and North Anterphian Velochamps and the Julford and District Tricup. Then in 1996; two things happened the championship became international and hybrid trikes were introduced. By 2002 the hybrids were doing 150 kph and burst into flames a lot as they had an absolute minimum of cooling and so the choice was made to ban motors. The teams that still wanted to run motors left to join the own championship the Motor Trike Cup this ended after a couple of seasons after it got too expensive and dangerous. Since 2005 the championship has seen substantial growth, even if it is sans-motors
