Race Across America 2015

Race Across America is known as one of the world’s toughest and most respected cycling races and with good reason. It is 30% longer than the Tour De France and completed in one third of the time. The race starts in Oceanside, California and finishes on the east coast in Annapolis, Maryland. The non-stop race covers almost 5000km, travels across 12 states with the cyclists climbing the equivalent of Mt Everest 6 times.

In June 2015, the Veloroos won the female, open category for a team of 4, finishing the race in 6 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes.  Their average speed across the entire country was  30.71 km per hour!  They decisively smashed a 19 year old record, beating their closest competition by more than 15 hours while battling some of the worst conditions the race had seen in a decade. The 13 member crew won the Lee Mitchell Award for the best crew, beating 80 other teams.

The Veloroos had a blast doing Race Across America and can’t wait to take on lots more cycling and triathlon adventures.
