Four years ago the Race Across America attempt didn’t go quite according to plan and so Team CFC are going back to finish what they started in 2018!
RAAM is a race. Starting in Oceanside, California on the West coast of America the four person team will ride 3063 miles non-stop, 24 hours a day until they reach the finish at Annapolis on the East coast of America. The route will take them through 12 States, over the Rockies and Appalachian mountain ranges, taking the total feet climbed to 170,000ft. It's not for the faint hearted, once the clock starts it does not stop until they cross the finish line as a team. It is the world’s longest time trial, the ultimate race of truth.
The riders are Kevin Musgrave (CFC Charity Trustee), Doug McKinnon (Team Member), Caspar Gilroy (Team Member) and Ed Cowell (Team Member). For Kevin this race is personal as he was on the team in 2018.
The riders may be over the other side of the world but your support will really help to carry them over the finish line. No other race combines the distance, terrain, weather and that tests the team’s spirit from beginning to end like RAAM. It really is a true test of speed, endurance, strength and camaraderie.
