Christoph Strasser wins Again Race Across America

Austrian Christoph Strasser won the 33rd Race Across America. Christoph Strasser finished the 3,020 miles in 7 days 15 hours and 56 minutes. He has won by a wide margin. The second rider is still on the course with over 500 miles still to go.

Strasser set a new record with his 3rd win in row. He shaved off several hours from last year's record time.

The RAAM is definitely one of the craziest races you could imagine. If you sleep you have to sleep on the bike to win. 

RAAM has a rich and storied history. In 1982 four individuals raced from the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles to the Empire State Building in New York City. Covered by national television, the race captivated the public’s imagination. Teams were added in 1992 and quickly became the most popular and fastest growing segment of the race. Relay team racing made the event accessible to any reasonably fit cyclist. The 2014 race will be the 34nd edition of RAAM.

Race Across America is one continual stage, similar to a time trial. Once the clock starts it does not stop until the finish line. RAAM is about 30% longer than the Tour de France. Moreover, racers must complete the distance in roughly half the time allowed.
