Race Across America

As I may already know, tomorrow I am traveling across the country as part of the support crew for Xtreme4—a team of four elite cyclists from DC who are competing in the Race Across America (and who happen to be friends of mine from—you guessed it, DC Triathlon Club). On top of my duties of crewing, I will also be photographing the whole race from start to finish. (Already we've had coverage from several national sources and my photographs have been seen by thousands across the country in the Washington Post, Tri DC Magazine, The Hill Newspaper and Outdoor Magazine.

Known as "The World's Toughest Bike Race!" the 2008 Race Across America start line is in Oceanside, California, and the finish line is over 3,000 miles away in Annapolis, Maryland. When the riders start, the clock starts. It doesn't stop until the team makes it to the East coast. That's right---24/7 cycling until we cross the finish line. By pushing the limits of their endurance competing in RAAM, Xtreme4 hopes to redefine people's conception of what's possible, and inspire others to use carbon neutral methods of transportation.

So if you're interested in finding more about the race, check out RAAM's website. If you want to see bloggers talking about all aspects of the race check RAAM Blog page where you'll find tons of stuff from all teams, including ours. If you just want to check out Team Xtreme4's thoughts, visit our blog page on our site. And if you want some great images from the race and all of my personal blogs, check back here periodically throughout the race.

Thanks and see you on the other side...of the country that is.
