Carlos Moleda is a true endurance sports legend. He was a Navy SEAL when he was paralyzed while on a mission in Panama back in December of 1989. Since then he has won four Ironman World Championship titles, completed the Race Across America with a team of handcyclists and is now gearing up to do an 800 mile off-road race in Australia.
Amy Snyder has put together one of the best cycling books ever written. Hell on 2 Wheels is a great read that takes you inside the toughest event on the planet, the Race Across America.
If you want to talk seriously about the Race Across America-RAAM- it’s important to bring someone on who has actually competed in RAAM on his own, on a tandem, and on a relay so you get a real sense for the craziness of the event. George Thomas came on with us to give us the inside scoop on the toughest event of them all. Huddle actually decided to sign up! Kidding. There are multiple starts for the different divisions coming up in Oceanside, California on June 14, 15 and 18. For constant updates on this year’s RAAM, go to www.raceacrossamerica.org .
