Сейчас проходят 2 самые крутые гонки и самые длинные .Так как в обоих из них у меня очень много друзей, что утро начинается с отслеживания.. прохождения моих друзей по треккерам. В течение дня лента Фейсбука полна новостей и фото, как и Strava

Race Across America

In length the RAAM is comparable to the Tour de France, but the races differ to a great extent. The courses of both races have varied over the years. However, in the Race Across America, the direction has always been from the west coast to the east coast of the United States, approximately 3,000 miles (4,800 km), making it a transcontinental event. More importantly, the race has no stages, i.e., it is in principle a nonstop event from start to finish, with the fastest competitors needing slightly over a week to complete the course. By contrast, the Tour de France features a different route each year (alternating between clockwise and counterclockwise circuits around France) and is about 2,300 miles long; the distance is divided into individual daily stages spread over the course of about 3 weeks and contested at much higher speeds.

Одна Tour Divide - ЭТО МОЯ ГОЛУБАЯ МЕЧТА... когда Ева подрастет , я обязетельно туда поеду.. А пока наслаждаюсь отчетами.. 4,4  тысячи удивиетельно прекасных дорог через всю Америку с юга на север (или наоборот , участники сами выбирают свой путь)

The Tour Divide is an annual mountain biking race traversing the length of the Rocky Mountains, from Canada to the Mexican border. Following the 2,745-mile (4,418 km) Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, it is an ultra-distance cycling race that is an extreme test of endurance, self-reliance and mental toughness. The race format is strictly self-supported, and it is not a stage race - the clock runs continuously from the start until riders cross the finish line, more than two weeks later.

Года 2 назад мне пришел запрос на добавление в друзья. Я , обычно, проверяю , кто добавляется, чтобы спама не было. Каково же было удивление получить запрос от Сары Купер! Женщина , которая выиграла не только женскую категорию в прошлом году на гонке Race across the West на 928 миль и проехала за 2 дня и 11 часов. Она выиграла и обошла всех МУЖЧИН!!  Она делает 2 гонки в Iowa (как организатор) и уже 2 год приглашает меня. Так что в этом году , в октябре я обещалась приехать.  ВОобще , удивительно как в штатах мир тесен, как много знаменитых ультрабайкером мне уже довелось встретить, подружиться.. Байк комьюнити удивительно тесный и дружелюбный мир.

А Сара постоянный мой мотиватор. КОгда мне кажется , что в 34 года думать об улучшении результатов глупо... тем более при наличии детей.. И тут сразу образ Сары (46 лет и мама 4!!! детей (дети уже, правда, большие) навеяно вот этим

"WOMEN’S LEADER SARAH COOPER 4TH OVERALL
June 14, 2017, 5:24 EDT

Much has been written and said about Sarah Cooper’s 2016 Race Across The West in which she was the overall winner—meaning she didn’t just finish ahead of all the women soloists, she finished ahead of all the men as well.

Her history of outperforming her fellow ultra-cyclists is repeating itself today. Only Marko Baloh, Christoph Strasser and Patric Gruner are ahead of this 46-year-old mother of four.

Сooper's emergence as an ultra-cycling powerhouse hasn't escaped the attention of the mainstream media. She and her 2017 RAAM are the focus of a sports documentary being produced for DirecTV. A crew has been with her since before her arrival in Oceanside and will be with her all the way to the end.Результаты этого года тут
