Hoo-boy! I think we got a shootout! Ultra-distance veteran Sandy Earl is going to be doing RAAM solo on a Carbent:

Looking at Barbara's record(s), I wouldn't
bet against her. I'll have the usual Ohio
RAAM support party ready when she comes
through.

That was great news. I happened to see it when looking through entries for raam. It is fun. We didn't know here name here until some speed events, but when you look at here bio she is well known as an ultra rider. Finishing 44 overall among 2500 entries in a 600km event proves this is not just a track star.
RAAM is an event you have one if you are an entrant with a chance of finishing within the time limit. An incredible challenge awaits them and a great show for us.

Barbara is certainly an accomplished athlete. Undertaking RAAM will be more of a logistics battle. Julius informs me that they have 3 French members of their support crew. They are looking for any financial support that can be provided. In particular, they need several US support vehicles to be lent to them for the duration of RAAM. If you or the company that you work for is interested in supporting them in their endeavor, please let them know.

Of course, they will have a huge audience, and likely lots of local cheering crews when they pass through!
