4 CYCLISTS, 7 DAYS, 3000 MILES NON-STOP ACROSS THE US Four riders prepare to compete in the epic Race Across America (RAAM), raising funds and awareness for four very deserving charities. Racing day and night against the clock and other teams, they will try to cycle over 3,000 miles, coast to coast across 12 states, in a week. That’s about one-third longer than the Tour de France, in about one-third of the time. How will they do it?
There has been a lot of training, with each rider facing his own unique challenges.
Sudarshan regularly has to dodge the wild animals of England.
Russell has been tackling the monumental hills of the BVI
Ex armed forces trainer, Craig, will do just about anything to make his training in Cayman more difficult. Training in the daytime is for amateurs.
Guy has been cycling hard on Cayman’s steepest hill, the flat-to-the-naked-eye incline at Lover’s Wall in East End.
A challenge of this magnitude requires more than just training; preparations were exhaustive and sometimes a little unorthodox.
Guy’s been putting in the miles and the hours.
Sudarshan has been ramping up his juicing routine.
Russell combines training with his other great passions.
Craig has been going about his normal routine and really doesn’t know what all the fuss is about.
It’s all well and good attempting crazy physical challenges, but what’s it all for?
We’re asking firms and individuals to support our ride by making a donation to one or all of our chosen charities.

Our ride is self-funded so every dollar donated will go to the charities.
