Antonia's Friends 2016

Uploaded on 19.07.16 at 02.07pm

In June 2016 a group of 12 cyclists and 19 support crew set out to complete RAAM, the Race Across America. A team of 8 and a team of 4 both raced as 'Antonia's Friends'. 3,090 miles from the West Coast to the East, in 7 days, an event 30% longer than the Tour de France, completed in half the time. They did it to raise money for Asthma UK to celebrate the life of Antonia Thomas, who tragically died from an asthma attack aged 10. There's a link on the end of the video for more information and to help fight Asthma: https://www.justgiving.com/teams/raam2016
