The Beginning – Decisions and what it means to race RAAM

 RAAM 2019:  What it all means? It’s taken a while to think about all the risks and positive outcomes of RAAM in the last 3 months. When reading and listening to previous RAAM competitors, all I get to hear is how inexplicably painful, harsh and psychologically destructive this race is. People describe it as a race that nobody finishes unscathed, a race that is harder than climbing Mount [...]

Bike Review: Liv Langma Advanced Pro

I have been lucky enough to have ridden the Liv Envie Advanced Pro 1 2016 for the past year. The Envie was my first race bike, and I loved it from the first time I rode it. It’s been a fast and reliable steed, and has become a little part of me, having carried me through my first road races with podium successes and through all the hard training sessions that followed. The [...]

RAAM 2019: What makes RAAM the Worlds Toughest Cycling Event?

 RAAM 2019:  What makes the Race Across America (RAAM) the toughest endurance cycling race in the world?

RAAM 2019 Introduction

In January this year, I raced the Revolve24 in Adelaide and qualified for the Race Across America (RAAM), the world’s toughest bicycle race. Qualifying for this pinnacle event of all endurance races is already a very pleasing result; however, what a feat it would be to race this epic challenge, which has been titled “12 days of hell” and seen many strong and talented endurance cyclists fail. The decision to ride 5,000 [...]
