Hi RAAM Fans ...

The credit for this work should go to:
1.  Nick Gerlich who has worked so hard at designing and building the RAAM
Online Web Pages from which this information comes.  Even now, Nick is on the
road and uploading photos from the RAAM Action every night as he goes across
America.
2.  RAAM Headquarters manned by the SCOR Club and headed by Larry Mahrenholtz.
The Web Site which is the result of all of Nick and Larry's work is very
impressive and if you don't have Internet Access, you need to get it in order to
really see what each rider is doing through each time station, etc.  Check out:

Mhyee said it very well, "Eric Seedhouse rolled by
after I learned of his situation from his crew.  This guy is struggling with the
fact of being 12 hours behind the leader.  Compounding his situation is that he
veiws himself (correctly) as a world champion.  He has won a deca-ultraman
competition.  (10 Ironmans, like 1500+laps of a pool, 1000+miles, and then a
measly 260 mile run) Whoa!!!  But hey, RAAM is a different animal.  RAAMers live
on their bikes."

"Eric's story to me, is what RAAM is all about.  The winner of RAAM is not who
reaches Savannah first, but who reaches the deepest inside themselves.  The
winner is who realizes their unlimited pontential and explodes any barriers that
present themselves(and you won't find someting that presents more barriers than
RAAM)..... The winner is the rider who does the best they can do."
