Race Across America 2013

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.

  1. Are their any stats on cyclists and the incidence of diagnosed mental illness?
    O’Bree the only one that readily comes to mind.

  2. there is a great book on Amazon.com about this race – read it – its crazy what these riders do to themselves …

  3. 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?
