Coming Soon / Race Across America

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.

Thanks for the plug. We're happy to be participating and my 1200K stoker, Mary Crawley, will be on our crew. BTW, we met you at BMB in 2006, not 2005.

Dear Rubic:

Good luck. We'll be rooting for you.
