Let’s race across America
Pat Bush in the low-speed wind tunnelJune means lots of different things to lots of different people. Some people celebrate the summer solstice, Father’s Day, or perhaps even Flag Day.

To an ultra-endurance cyclist, however, June means it’s time for Race Across America. And for those cyclists who are a bit lacking in both the “ultra” and “endurance” area, June means it’s time for the Race Across America 24-Hour Corporate Challenge.

Pitting man against the elements, other corporate teams, and eventually his own teammates in the support vehicle, the RAAM Corporate Challenge is a 24-hour relay race beginning in San Diego and ending in Flagstaff, Arizona. 

This year, a six-man team from Clif Bar will tackle the event, which begins on Sunday, June 10th, with hopes of winning for the second time in 3 years. 

The last several weeks of preparation for the team have included weekly time trials, lots of strategic planning, and endless hours dialing in aero positions in the Clif Bar low-speed wind tunnel. Ok, it’s the yoga studio, but low-speed wind tunnel sounds so cool and the overhead fans were turned on so...

When Pat Bush (see photo), was asked what the team’s strategy might be for the race, the always-philosophical time-trial specialist’s only comment was “Wait…and see.” 

Looks like the team might have some tricks up its sleeve for the 2007 edition.
