Velomobiles to make cycle challenge debut

Velomobiles will be part of the Isle of Man Cycle Challenge for the first time next month.

The contraptions are either trikes or quads - contained in an aerodynamic shell.

Ian Perry, of the British Human Powered Vehicle Club - who has signed up for the event - says his velomobile could hit up to 80mph on the circuit.

The annual event will take place on the TT course on September 22.
