Back to RAAM in 2016

Everyone who knows me, knows I love cycling and I love RAAM. Since my last participation in 2013, I've officiated in 2014 and was a crew chief in 2015. Those two experiences gave me a whole new outlook on the race and at the same time fueled my desire to use my new knowledge to better my result. My best time is 9 days and 2 hours and I am sure that I can do better than that. So, joining an elite club of sub 9 days finishers is the first goal. Could I win? I will give it my best shot, that is all I can promise. It is a dream I am pursuing and it would definitely be the highlight of my career.

Sebring 12/24h Cycling Race is always a kind of prelude to the season. A 24h race in February might not seem OK to someone with a “normal” cycling seasons, with mostly base training during the winter months and so a bit too early to be thinking of  brilliant result for a 24h race. Nontheless, I’ve been thinking about this race for a couple of years now and finally made the choice to do it in 2014. The broken shoulder messed up my participation and I was on the eve of canceling, when Irma intervened and told me to go and take advantage of perfect spring weather in Florida to train for the rest of season (I haven’t been riding my bike other than on indoor trainer for more than 2 months). So, I went, got to know how to ride on the road again, did a lot of miles and won the short version of the race - 12h with a quite descent result. Promised myself and Mark Andrews (the organizer) that I will be back for the big one.
