Race Across America
This is the story of the RAAM Roses, an amateur British cycling team attempting Race Across America, the toughest bicycle race on the planet.
Plucky foursome Ollie, Tim, Woodsy and Anna are determined to break the world record for the fastest mixed team to complete the course – but they’re up against it. Although visually dazzling, the 3,000 mile route – stretching from the west to east coast of the USA – is notoriously punishing, even for experienced athletes. Woodsy is a heavy-set rugby player and Anna has never ridden a road bike before. From the start, the team suffers injuries and setbacks.
Will the group conquer their mental and physical exhaustion to fulfil their dream and break the record?
