If you haven’t heard of it, RAAM is one of the World’s toughest point-to-point endurance races. Taking riders virtually the entire width of North America, the first rider home wins. Given the race typically lasts well over a week this makes for some extremely brief sleeping arrangements. You snooze, you lose. Anyway, these riders are incredible and, yes, more than a little nuts.

Are their any stats on cyclists and the incidence of diagnosed mental illness?
O’Bree the only one that readily comes to mind.
I’m sure there are plenty out there, Col.
Marco Pantani was one.
there is a great book on Amazon.com about this race – read it – its crazy what these riders do to themselves …
Or you can read this too!
or better yet chat with Waratah MCC rider Glenn Druery who did the team event last year !
Why is it always depression? Can’t there be something like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, etc. Look out for each other out there, RU OK?
