RAAM - Teams on Zipp wheels take 1 & 2

Race across America!

Byggkjøp sponsored by BMC Cycling and Zipp won the eight-person division in a time of five days, nine hours and 56 minutes. That time bettered the previous record for the category (five days, 15 hours, 43 minutes), established last year by Team Type 1. The Norwegian-based team averaged 23.2 mph, the second-fastest speed ever ridden in the race regardless of category.

The eight members of the Team Type 1 squad, all of whom have Type 1 diabetes, bicycled the final miles of their journey together on Zipps to complete the 3,015-mile race that began last Wednesday in Oceanside, California, about four hours after the winners. Congratulations to all.
