Team 383 Dex Tooke Solo RAAM


Yes, the rumors are true.  I have lost my mind completely and entered solo RAAM 2020.

Although there have been several attempts, no person 70+ years old has completed RAAM. 
I'll be 70 in 2020 and I know it would be a huge regret if I didn't at least give it a shot.  I only made it by 1 hour 15 minutes in 2011.  And I realize the route will be 80 miles longer in 2020.  And I realize I'm slower at 70 than I was at 61. 
So I'm hoping RAAM requires more heart than it does speed.  And I'm hoping my 8 times crossing America serving as crew will lend some wisdom to my attempt. 
Do I know I can make it?  Of course I don't.  Nobody does.  But I know I have to try.  

My $10K goal covers the rental vehicles and gas needed to get to and from and through the race.  Anything more will help "fuel" will help fuel the rider, which will be about 91,000 calories of food.

Any amount is appreciated.
