Race Across America (RAAM) on TV this weekend

The Insight Race Across America has announced a two-hour NBC Sports airing of the 2004 edition on Saturday, January 22, 2005, at 14:30-16:30 EST (check listings for any local variations). Sports announcer Jim Lampley and his production company are responsible for getting RAAM back on network TV for the first time since 1986. Lampley was the announcer for the first five transcontinental bike races from 1982-1986 which made two-time winner Lon Haldeman a household name. Eric Heiden who helped announce one of those broadcasts will be returning to RAAM this year on a four-person team.
