The race promotes a new discipline of foil cycling

which allows cyclists to “fly on water” aboard pedal boats

The boats were created by the Annecy startup JetCycle


“The Jetcycle is a pedal vehicle, with a pedaling system that resembles the concept of the recumbent boat bike, and we have added – and this is our innovation – foils at the front and rear. We have a propulsion system that is a registered trademark and which allows us, by pedaling at a certain speed of about 9 kilometers per hour, to activate a small flight controller, just like in an airplane, to fly on the water using the foils. “
