Covered over 460miles in a little over one day, Leah Goldstein is stepping up a gear.
Last night when the sun went down it gave Leah such a reprieve from the heat! She cooled down and began recovering from the intense rays. Into the sunset and 2500 miles to go!!
She reached Time Station 7, Prescott Arizona in 1day11min41sec, just one hour behind the overall leader, Henrik Dam Hansen.
A few days before the start of RAAM, Heather and her crew grabbed some quick selfies with the infamous 305ft metal dragon, in Anza Borrego/Galleta Meadows, and “payed homage to the desert serpent“ asking for a swift and safe passage through that section!
Temps in the desert are 110° and the team are pleased with how Heather adapted to the heat.Continue reading
Italian roookie, Dorina Vaccaroni is definitely demonstrating her Olympic mindset within the first day of RAAM.
Having passed through Time Station 2 (Borrego Springs) in 11hours 44mins, she's sitting top 5 overall and has cycled 210miles averaging 12.4mph.Continue reading
In Goldstein's third RAAM race, she's leading the women's race and is third overall reaching Time station 2 in 10hours 45mins, just under 1 hour faster than the second female, Dorrina Vaccaroni.
We know that Goldstein is attempting to set a new record for the 50-59 category, which currently stands at 10days 19hours.
Hey, crews; get plenty of ice, and water for yourself and your riders. Be aware, be prepared, be there at the end.

A team to watch in RAAM 2021 will be “Team Thin Energy.” This 4-person team is sponsored by Thin Energy, makers of a line of caffeine-free plant-based wellness energy drinks. According to team member Alex Isaly, they’re “—in it to... Continue reading

Seana Hogan (USA) is closing in on the finish. RAAM officials created a new rule not in the rule book (but will be in the 2020 rule book) as the 60-69 women’s category is new to the race. Because they give the 60-69 men and solo women 24 hours more than the solo men, they are granting 60-69 women a day more than the 60-69 men and solo women... Continue reading

With 2355 miles completed, she is 42 miles west of TS 40 in Greensburg, In... Continue reading

Sometimes RAAM is just about making sure nothing goes wrong. If you can stick to your plan, you’re way ahead of the game. According to Ryan Anderson, a crew member for racer Alan Bradley (Australia), his rider is going well and has a positive outlook.
Anderson says that Bradley’s approach to sleep is to do four to five power naps each day of maybe 10 minutes. Once a day he will go down for a 90-minute sleep. The basic pattern is to ride until he is fatigued... Continue reading

Following an extended break in Colorado due to saddle sores, Seana Hogan (USA) is back on the bike and motoring across Kansas. That she’s still on the bike owes to a combination of determination on her part, an excellent crew and some advice shared by other crews.
Without going into the nitty, or the, uh, gritty, we can report that the solution came from divers. Apparently, dealing with sand inside a wet suit is a big enough problem as to require its own special... Continue reading
