Race Across Oregon 2005

In 2005, a bunch of OHPV members decided to compete in the Race Across Oregon, a two-day, 500-some-odd mile bicycle race for ultramarathon cyclists. It's a RAAM qualifier, so it's no cakewalk. Since they were the only recumbent team entered, they were a shoe-in for their division. In the end they surprised everyone, including themselves. 

The participants can tell the tale the best: here's Michael's version and here's Rand's version.

Here's a couple pictures:
The crew reports that they were too busy crewing to take good photos. There's links to other teams' photo albums on the RAO site.
