Yes, that fabled event is just 10 days away. I was reminded of that fact when I saw a mention of Kevin Kaiser in Chuck Lathe's Atlanta 600K report.
You'll recall from this November 2007 write-up that Kevin is one-half of the two-man team doing RAAM on fixed gears. The other is Jeff Bauer. We rode briefly with Jeff at BMB 05 [editor's note: it was 06; see comments]and also saw him and tandem partner Mary Crawley at PBP 07.
We wish Kevin & Jeff all the best.
Doing RAAM is an expensive proposition -- the total cost is estimated at $20,000 -- and Jeff and Kevin have been selling jerseys and other items to raise a little dough. If you're interested in helping out, check out their Website here. You can also donate through Paypal here.
