The Race Across America (RAAM) is widely recognized as the toughest bicycle race in the world. RAAM is a 3,000-mile, coast-to-coast, bicycle race that starts in Oceanside, CA and finishes in Annapolis, MD. RAAM has become an iconic American event. First run in 1982, the race has continued uninterrupted. The 2016 race marked the 35th anniversary, making it one of the longest running events in cycling. Racers and crew come from around the world to compete. Why is RAAM so compelling? Why do racers and crew keep coming back, year after year?

No film has ever captured what makes RAAM so special. That story is told here. 44 minutes Running Time.
