Team Xtreme4 is a Washington, DC based team of 4 and a support crew of more than twelve others who are planning to go back and compete in Race Across America (RAAM). In 2008 Xtreme4 set the all time record for 4 person mixed teams in RAAM, and we want to go back and set a new record.
The concept of the race is simple—completing it is not. The RAAM start line is on the west coast in Oceanside, California; the finish line is over 3,000 miles away in Annapolis, Maryland. When the riders start, the clock starts. It doesn’t stop until the team makes it to the East coast. First team across the country wins. The current mixed 4 person team record is 5 days, 22 hours, 40 minutes at a rate of 21.17mph.
