These athletes competed in a ‘flying’ boat race Location: Lake Annecy, France Courtesy: Wagon Blanc / EP Medias The race promotes a new discipline of foil cycling, which allows cyclists to ‘fly on water’ aboard pedal-powered boats. The boats were created by Annecy-based startup JetCycle (SOUNDBITE) (French) JETCYCLE CEO, NICOLAS PICARD, SAYING:

“The Jetcycle is a pedal-powered vehicle, with a pedaling system that resembles the concept of boat cycling while lying down, and we added – and this is what our innovation is – foils in front and at the back. We have a propulsion system that is trademarked and that allows us, by pedaling at a certain speed of around 9 kilometers per hour, to activate a small flight controller, just like in a plane, to fly on the water by using the foils.”
