extreme fours, Race Across America (RAAM) 2008 4 Person Team

An extreme challenge for extreme change: go green
Team Xtreme4 is a Washington, DC based team of 4 and a support crew of more than twelve others who are planning to go back and compete in Race Across America (RAAM). In 2008 Xtreme4 set the all time record for 4 person mixed teams in RAAM, and we want to go back and set a new record.

The concept of the race is simple—completing it is not. The RAAM start line is on the west coast in Oceanside, California; the finish line is over 3,000 miles away in Annapolis, Maryland. When the riders start, the clock starts. It doesn’t stop until the team makes it to the East coast. First team across the country wins. The current mixed 4 person team record is 5 days, 22 hours, 40 minutes at a rate of 21.17mph.

"Did you know that the bicycle is the most energy efficient transportation mode? It is 3 times more efficient than walking, 5 times more efficient than using the train and 15 to 20 times more efficient than driving a car ."
