In case you hadn't noticed, the Race Across America (RAAM) is underway. As the name implies, it is quite literally a bike race to see who can get from the West Coast to the East Coast of the US the fastest. There are several different categories of riders. Currently, four-time RAAM men's champion Jure Robic is leading the Solo Male (Under 50) section, having pedaled the first 858 miles at an amazing average speed of 18.39 miles per hour. Barbara Buatois is leading the Solo Female (under 50) category, having completed the same distance as Robic at an average speed of 12.6 mph.
