Race across america

By broc - Posted on 22 July 2013

Hey guys,

I'm looking onto RAAW - Race across America as a potential race for 2014 in a team of 4. At the moment I'm scared by the overall cost and the organisation of a support crew, let alone the 3000+ miles involved.

Right now I've nothing decided or planned, I'm just trying to gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision on it. Has anybody raced it or know someone who has. I have so many questions to ask. Or is there anybody who has been involved in the endurance cycling scene.

I know this is a little light on details so far but too be honest its just a idea floating about my head right now.

Glenn Druery from Hunters Hill did RAAM a couple of times I think. In 2007, he was in a 2 man team that went pretty well, finishing in just over 7 days (Team Velokraft).

I haven't seen him for some time, but I'm sure he'd love to provide advice on how to go about preparing for the event.
