The cycling Race Across America (RAAM) is underway! It's an insane 3,000-mile 12-day long race from San Diego to Annapolis. Unlike in the Tour de France, the clock runs non-stop in RAAM (similar to the format of the famous Alaskan Iditarod dog sled race). You can track it here:
I'm thinking about stopping at the City Dock in Annapolis next Friday evening to see RAAM finish... it will be a good pit-stop on my drive to Philly for the sprint tri the following morning. Has anyone watched the finish before? Very few people are bold/crazy enough to race RAAM... what is the finish like?
Luke - you certainly don't have to look very far in the club to get those answers. See the RAAM Record Books ("Team 4-Person - Mixed")!
Yeah, Patrick told me about that record at ITU San Diego! Very cool!
We should get another group to do this in the future!!
I am SUPER excited about RAAM and have been helping one of the teams that starts on Saturday. They'll most likely be done by the time I get to Annapolis, but I definitely plan on tracking the race.
