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.
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:

Today on Global Freedom Network we are interviewing Raam who wrote the book Man behind the Mirror concerning the King of Pop Michael Jackson!
They Called Him A Mystery…
His fans loved him with an unparalleled devotion. The media loved to hate and judge him. He was the biggest icon the world has ever had, with 2.5 bilion people tuning into his funeral, yet he is shrouded in mystery.. why was he so loved?
What was it about Michael Jackson that transcended all nations, barriers and united people? Everyone except his fans judged & ridiculed him, called him a freak and monster…But who REALLY was The Man Behind The Mirror?

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.
