SORT BY Relevancy
This evening we're joined by members (JD Thornburg, Hunter Huss, Tommy Snodgrass and crew chief Terry Lansdell) of the Concord, NC based 8 person relay Team FOG!
FOG Racing of Concord, NC competed in the 2014 Race Across America (RAAM) to raise money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Known as the “world’s toughest bicycle race,” RAAM will set more than 250 competitors on a 3,000-mile route stretching from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast. Team FOG will compete as an eight man team and race continuously day and night, on their own power expecting to complete the journey in roughly six days.
RAAM is the ultimate test of strength and determination. But every day, Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte helps children heal faster because they’re surrounded by their families. The goal of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to improve the health and well-being of nearly 3.7 million children worldwide every year – and it has indeed made a global impact. And while its approach is to think globally, RMHC acts locally by tailoring programs and services that address the most urgent needs of each community it serves. With a network of local chapters, like the one here in Charlotte, its core programs can be found in 52 countries and regions around the globe.
FOG Racing is a group of avid cyclists who believe strongly in the Ronald McDonald House mission. These courageous adventurers will brave heat, wind, thunderstorms, altitude, the dark of night, fatigue and sleep deprivation, and cross several major mountain ranges to raise awareness and money in support of this mission.
Join us for a discussion with 2nd place men's solo finisher Mark Pattinson, 60+ upright champion Dave Elsberry and RAAM Media 1 journalist Vic Armijo.
Chris Hopkinson describes himself as "an ultra cyclist, dad, fiancee, 3x solo RAAM finisher, coach, Race Across Ireland finisher and UMCA 24hr Champion." We like to think of him as one of the best known, most colorful and decorated ultra cyclists in the world. Hoppo is a charismatic guy that has spent almost all of 2014 training, racing or traveling to train and race. After one of his most successful seasons ever, George Thomas sat down with him to discuss his life, his season and most recently, his well documented battle (in New Zealand) over a season long UMCA title with fellow ultra cyclist and defending UMCA champion, Valerio Zamboni.
What a show we have for you today! 2013 RAAM 60+ solo champion Mario Fraternali, crew chief Mauro Farabegoli and crew member/translator Andrea Lombardi join us from Italy to discuss the 2013 race as well as Mauro's success as crew chief for 8 crossings!
Bryce Walsh formerly of Chicago and now a resident of Boulder, CO joins us this evening to discuss his incredible career as an endurance athlete. Bryce has finished RAAM as well as numerous 500 mile and 24 hour road events. However, Walsh does not limit himself to skinny tire racing. He has competed in Ride the Divide and one of the most amazing stage races in the world - the Cairo to Cape Town Tour d'Afrique also known as the world's longest bicycle race. Bryce joins us this evening at 8PM MST.

Two woman relay team Pine Marten - Jill DeFratis Robinson and Jodie Lawston as well as crew chief Andrea Alfaro. What a team! Andrea served as crew chief for RAAM but also brings her racing background to the team which includes racing as one of the original Pine Marten team members. Jill and Andrea competed as a two person team at this year's Fireweed 400. How will they fare against the men's teams? Does it matter? I look forward to learning about this unique team dynamic!
Sarah Cooper brings her inspirational story to Over the Top Radio this evening. She is a stay at home mother of four (plus pets!). Her husband is an infertility doc. Sarah previously worked as an advanced care cardiac nurse practitioner until her first child was born. Now she has four and is crazy, crazy busy. She drives her coach crazy because she never sleeps enough - great home training for ultra.
Cooper is a former triathlete who whose first endurance cycling race was the 2014 Sebring 24 hour where she rode 433.8 miles (winning her division and qualifying for Raam in her first outing). Now she's facing uncharted territory on the mountainous Silver State 508 course.
After his performance at the 2014 Race Across the West Marko Baloh of Slovenia is a heavy favorite at the Silver State 508. However, previous guests David Haase and Adam Bickett look to give him some strong competition. We visit with Marko this evening to discuss his views of the upcoming race, strengths, weaknesses and, hopefully, a bit of race insight for one of the best in the sport. Just a few of Marko's achievements:

Adam Bickett, one of the race favorites at the 2014 Silver State 508, joins us this evening. Adam is an ultra-cyclist based out of Southern California. He finds great value in the personal discovery and rigorous demands of long distance cycling, and hopes to show others that they also can push their own boundaries and find purpose, happiness, and fulfillment in the process.
10 years after his first double century (200 mile ride), Adam raced the 2014 Race Across the West, finishing a close second over the 880 mile course. This is the first section of, and a stepping stone toward the looming goal now on the horizon: Race Across America. RAAM is the legendary 3,000 mile transcontinental, non-stop race from Oceanside to Annapolis, Maryland that is arguably the most grueling race in the world.
Ever wonder what the most grueling, endurance based sporting event on the planet is? Most would say the Race Across Amercia, a 3,000 mile cycling event with no stages and no stops, just balls-to-the-wall racing from one end of the country to the other! Oh, and you have just over a week to complete it! Champions of the race complete it in 8-9 days. Do the math...that's a lot of time in the saddle with very little time for rest or sleep. Today, we'll be chatting with one of the founders of RAAM, and the first man to ever win the event, Lon Haldeman! But don't worry, for those who aren't up for that kind of challenge, we'll be sharing some fun local rides that you can tackle!
