Nice, I did this back in 2004 with Michigan Technological University. We took 1st for design, but had problems in the competition. In the sprint event one rider took out a traffic barrier, then hit a hay bale and LAUNCHED over it, landing on the side and going for a big tumble at probably 25 mph. Then on the pothole filled endurace course our steering mount cracked, probably in no way related to the X-Games style big air that it saw in the sprint!
