Le Col Supports Race Across America

 

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Cycle Across the USA

This year Le Col is happy to be supporting the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Race Across America (RAAM) cycle team! Defence Sport and Recreational Association (DSRA), a membership organisation based within the MOD, decided to enter a team into this iconic endurance event.

RAAM starts 20th June and is made up of a 3000 mile time trial from San Diego, California on the west coast of the USA to Annapolis, Maryland on the east coast. Competitors have a 9 day time limit to relay through 50 + checkpoints!

During this arduous journey the teams must negotiate extremes in temperature and terrain! The DSRA team will consist of 8 riders and 4 crew.

Check out the Recommended Kit for this Race.  

The fastest recorded time for an 8 person team was set back in 2013 by the Allied Forces - Team! They completed 2962 miles in 5 days 3 hours and 45 minutes and averaged 24.19 mph.

We wish the DSRA team a safe journey and best of luck! Look out for the teams progress on Le Col
