Jason Shuker

Race Across America - June 12, 2018

The toughest bike race in the world begins in…


Race Across America

The world’s toughest bike race.

4,942 km

RAAM is 30% longer than the Tour de France.

Maximum 12 days

Solo racers must complete Race Across America in fewer than 12 days. That’s half as many days as the Tour de France.

500 km per day

To finish inside the time limit, racers must ride close to 500 km/day. This means pedalling for 20 hours, and getting only three or four hours of sleep, every day.

Donations and Sponsorship

Jason and his crew need your support!

For Jason to reach his goal, both monetary and in-kind donations are essential. A monetary donation will help with costs such as registration fees, vehicle rentals, insurance, and gas, and would be a wonderful contribution. Donations in-kind that help with arranging vehicles, accommodations, bike parts and maintenance products, and safety and other equipment would be greatly appreciated. Please read our brochure for more information. We would love to discuss opportunities with you and customize a sponsorship package. For any monetary and in-kind contributions or to learn more about sponsorship opportunities with us, please contact us at bike@shukercycles.com.

You can't accomplish anything without the possibility of failure."
