Race accross America, Im comming to visit you Guys!

Many of you may remember a thread I started about my stepdad breaking a Guiness world record for cycling across Australia?

https://www.fireblades.org/forums/off...d-cycling.html

Well as a result he has recieved an invitaion to compete in the "Race accross America" in June and I will be coming as part of his support crew I only just found out so I havent had time to check out the route yet but I guess I will get to see a lot of the US (at about 25mph I guess Ill get to take a lot in) There is so much Id like to see but I guess I wont have much spare time so it will just be whatever I see along the way??

Ill give you guys an update when I find out more

Looks like they have a 2007 route posted. If I am correct you will be going right by Putnam Raceway on the way into Indy

Yeah looks like they have a time station there.. RAAM - Race Across America > Past RAAMs > RAAM 2006 > 2006 Route and Timestations ( DNN 2.1.2 )

Looking at the maps I see a lot of familiar names but until now really I had no idea where anything is geographically

Looks like Ive got some research to do

Putnam Park is a track there has been BlueSheep spotted at up in Indiana, it is near Indianapolis, Indiana. Hammer and Kawboy69 are close to that. As is Southpark460, Baketech and EvlTwin. It is a ways from me as I am down south in Alabama
