Human-Powered Racers Ready to Take Off

May 24, 2003|From Staff and Wire Reports

The flag drops today on the second-most-famous race of the Memorial Day weekend: the 35th Annual Arcata to Ferndale World Championship Kinetic Sculpture Race.

Unlike the Indianapolis 500, the Kinetic Sculpture Race is slow and silent, because the entertaining homemade racers must be human-powered.

The 38-mile course has the intrepid racers trudging through sand, water, road and mud.

Race director Bill Croft said he expects as many as 45 racers will be on the starting line when they shove off at noon.
