ULTRA CYCLIST CHRIS RAGSDALE RIDES AGAIN
After amazing experiences, challenges, and success in a long list of ultra distance races, I have committed to Race Across America (RAAM) in 2013. RAAM describes itself as “the true test of speed, endurance, strength and camaraderie.” I hope you’ll join me as I work to build all of these components in the months ahead to prepare for America’s premier ultra-distance cycling event.
Based on my personal philosophies of seeking new challenges, enjoying the journey, and using preparation and planning to generate anticipation and excitement about upcoming events, my plans for RAAM are well under way—both on and off the bike.
Explore these pages and follow me on my journey to the solo RAAM start on June 11, 2013, in Oceanside, California. My version of RAAM will be relatively low budget, but my estimated expenses already total $20,000-30,000. Join my “virtual” crew of fans, support me if you can, and watch my dream become a reality!
