RACE ACROSS AMERICA
Race Across America is the world’s toughest bicycle race, so naturally I was in. The wheels started turning for RAAM in 2016 when I crewed my friend Rob for his 12 day solo race. I’m not much of a cyclist (heck, I borrowed a bike for RAAM!) so a 4 person team sounded smarter than going solo. Our team, 4 Dudes Race 3000 Miles To A Cure, included myself, Ryan Jean, Erik Braun, and Matteo Seconi. Ryan and I spent a few months training for the race by bicycle touring South America through Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. After starting in Oceanside, California we finished in Annapolis, Maryland in 7 Days, 4 hours and 28 minutes. Our team also raised $42,500 for brain cancer research through the nonprofit 3000 Miles To A Cure.
