In 2012 during my first RAAM I was struck, dragged and then run over by a vehicle while riding through Kayenta, AZ. I spent 7 hrs in the hospital, was then released and with the help of a great crew rode another 2,300 miles to Annapolis to finish in 8th with a time of 10days 20hrs. Hornsby Films was along for the ride and someday you will get to see my first attempt at RAAAM. Click on the button to the right to see a trailer.
In 2013, we came back with a new mentality; lighter, faster, with fewer comforts. With a crew of just five, and supporting using just a mini-van and a pick-up, we shaved 30 hrs off my 2012 time, finishing in 9 days 16hrs. We set a new Canadian record, we were the fastest North American racer, were the only non-professional rider to break the 10 day barrier, and finished 7th overall in what was the most competitive field EVER assembled in the history of the Race Across AMerica.
The summer of 2014 we have decided to forgo RAAM due to the incredible personal expense. As a self funded team we must pay our own way and in order to make our next RAAM attempt a barn burner we are saving every penny and competing in two of the most interesting underground races in the world.

Since the summer of 2013 we have been powered exclusively by Spiz. This product is the best thing we have ever used and trust me when we say this because we have used just about every nutrition product. We cannot believe records are being set on such awful bowel moving, chemical filled, poorly absorbing products like Ensure and Boost. If you want to race like a pro choose what this amateur team chooses. After all, what was good enough for Pete is good enough for us.
