The Race Across America (RAAM) is one of the toughest endurance events in the world. If you haven’t ever wondered—even secretly—what it would be like to compete in the RAAM, you’re possibly either devilishly smart or surely completely unimaginative—or both. The Paved staff is not that smart and often suffers from acute over-imagination, so we’re not only going to report on this incredible event, we’re considering going and experiencing the thing from the saddle. The video series Riding the Line will follow two teams and two solo racers on their journey through RAAM 2013. Here’s a teaser, but check back later for episode one.
