RAAM Update: Barbara Buatois wins RAAM in first try

Throughout her race-winning 3,00-mile ride across the U.S., observers and fans talked of how recumbent racer Barbara Buatois looked as if she were out for a Sunday ride. And aside from appearing a bit darker than she did in Oceanside, California, at the start, she still looked much the same as she crossed the finish line in Annapolis, Maryland on Sunday, finishing in a time of 11 days, 19 hours and 48 minutes with an average speed of 10.59 mph.

Robic collects fifth RAAM title

Slovenian Jure Robic won his fifth Race Across America on Friday, finishing more than 12 hours ahead of runner-up Gerhard Gulewicz. Recumbent racer Barbara Buatois still leads the women’s race and is expected to finish early Sunday.
