If you’ve been on Zwift for very long, you’ve probably seen Ray Brown riding. He’s not hard to spot–he’s the one with the crazy long name (Ray RAAM for Breast Cancer Research Foundation..) wearing pink and logging crazy rides of 200, 500, even 1000 miles.
Ray is a 58 year old guy from Georgia who is training for Race Across America (RAAM) and also raising funds and awareness for breast cancer. He uses Zwift as his primary training platform, and Bicycling magazine published an interview with him yesterday.
My favorite quote from Ray, when asked, “What do you think about your chances at RAAM?”
If you do 3,000 miles in 10 to 12 days, a lot can happen. I fear this thing as much as I respect it. I can’t say I’ll finish. It’s one thing to be confident, but cockiness can kill you in this race.
