Mark Pattinson has multiple top five finishes in the 3,000 mile, coast to coast, non-stop bicycle Race Across America (RAAM).

Mark is one of the most discilplined racers in the field who is able to let the rabbits go at the start and pick his way throught the field as the races crosses the continent. We look forward to discussing the 2014 edition with Mark this evening.

Bryce joins us this evening at 8PM MST.
Most everyone is familiar with the Tour de France, but if you want to discuss a truly grueling cycling event, nothing tops the Race Across America. Last time, we talked to one of the founders of the race, but this time, we will be chatting with local Ohio racer, Mike McClintock, who just completed the 2014 RAAM in 11 days, 20 hrs! Hear his adventure first hand!

Ultracycling legend Lon Haldeman joins us to talk about his recent PAC Tour in Ghana as well as the upcoming Elite PAC Tour.
The fastest transcontinental bike tour ever! PAC Tour's first Elite Tour was in 1995 and has been going strong ever since!
Daily miles range from 140 to 196 miles per day. Riders completing 100% of the tour will qualify for the Race Across AMerica.This extremem cross country bike tour intended for the most serious riders who are looking for a very challenging ride across America. All riders must routinely ride 200 miles in 10-12 hours in training. An Elite Team Division is being offered for two riders to share participating by individually riding 80-120 miles each day.
This Elite Tour begins in San Diego, California with moderate daily distances the first three days while crossing the desert. We hope all riders will be able to gradually work themselves into shape before they begin the longer days for the remainder of the tour. The route will use a combination of good cycling roads we have ridden for many years.
This is not an easy cross-country route following the boring flat lands of the Southern states. We will intentionally climb many steep mountain grades in Arizona and New Mexico. In the eastern states we will ride many hilly days including the notorious Talimena Parkway which includes many 15% grades.
This cross country bicycle tour is only for the best riders. Do not come on this tour if you are looking for an easy ride across the country. Even the fastest riders will be tested to their limits on most days.

Janice has placed first racing The 508, Race Across Oregon, 2 Person Relay Race Across America and many more events and usually makes it look easy. RAAM 2014 through some previously unexperienced challenges her way but Janice overcame them all for a successful finish.
Race Across America is a 3,022 mile non-stop, coast to coast bicycle race. Janice started with the solo field Tuesday June 10 in Oceanside, CA and finished 11 days later in Annapolis, MD.
