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:

HOT ITEM -- Andre Clavedetscher leads Wolfgang Fasching by 45 minutes at
Seiling, Oklahoma, 1507 Miles into the race.

HOT ITEM -- Gerry Tatrai appears to have bridged the gap and now trails Kaname
Sakurai by only 21 minutes for 5th place at TS30.  Rob Kish in 4th place is only
15 minutes ahead of Sakurai ... so only 36 minutes separates Kish, Sakurai, and
Tatrai for 4th, 5th, and 6th place.  Danny Chew is 1:37 ahead of Kish and only
about 1 hour behind Fasching.  In total, less than 4 hours separates the first 6
cyclists at TS30!!  The race is now heating up big time!!

"And Gerry Tatrai is this Wonder from Down Under, Australia.
     He lives for this race -- it's his whole life!!
     He loves this race ... and really thinks he can win!!"
               Michael Shermer

HOT ITEM -- Team Colorado leads Team Coast Guard by 2 Hours at Dilkon, Arizona,

back.
