Fasching ready for RAAM

Wolfgang Fasching is riding his eighth and last Race Across America, 11 years after his premiere. He has not only won the race three times, but ended up on the podium every time he has ridden it. The race started Sunday in Lake Henshaw, California and will run for an expected eight to nine days for about 5000 kilometres to Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Fasching is one of the favourites to win the race, along with Daniel Wyss, who won last year, and Jure Robic, who has won the race twice. "But there are some young riders who could make our life difficult," he said. "Like for example Larry Optis from Canada or John Jurczynski and Brett Walker. The Australian Richard Vollebregt is also very strong."
