The Crazy Men (and women) of Cycling

When one of your friends does something that you're not really sure is good for them, do you support them? What if that something is racing a bike across the country. Dave Haase is attempting his fourth Race Across America (RAAM). He's twice finished in fourth place. This year, he's determined to win.

Dave is a great guy and a great ally for cycling in general. He owns and operates Attitude Sports in Fond du Lac, Wis. RAAM is not for the weak bodied or willed. Dave certainly has a strong will and he's proven his body can withstand the torture as well.

I truly wish him the best. He's just one day into the race, with about eight more to go. A lot can happen in those nine days. You can follow all of the action on the RAAM site or Dave's own Web site. The latest posting on Dave's site says he took a wrong turn last night and "almost got taken out by an owl."

Here's a good pre-race interview with Dave:
