RAAM here I come (Race Across AMerica)

You know I’ve been very lucky in my life for the most part. I always lead an active life, mostly cycling, and adventure vacations for the most part. I have ridden EVERY mountain stage at Le Tour de France between 1994 and 2005, I have ridden various stages of La Vuelta de Espana, numerous Vermont bicycle tours, RAGBRAI, I once rode from Lands End to John O’Groats (a ride across a country I don’t even like), why–because it’s there!

Anyway, I look forward to my next great adventure, I will be sure to a lot of pics and post them!

In 11 days I am embarking on one of my greatest adventures RAAM, Race Across America, I am on the support crew for one of the most fantastic and incredible unltra endurance races in the world. Personally, I feel any serious cyclist should at least once in his/her lifetime attend the Le Tour de France, attend The Giro d’Italia, attend La Vuelta de Espana, attend the world championships, ride RAGBRAI, and ride RAAM. Obviously I am not riding across America, but I am supporting a wonderful Team Sarcoma powered by Bacchetta Bikes our riders– Dana Lieberman, Christopher Kaiser, Alex Miller, and Steve Petty. I am proud to do this, but since my physical re-awakening now I want to ride this.

It is obviously too late for this year, but next year I would seriously like to participate in this event. One of the reason I am crewing for this edition is I want to see the logistics of doing the race, I really believe that I can do this and will seriously pursue participating in the next edition.
