As near as I can tell the smart money is on Jure Robic to repeat his win in 2005.

Trevino, get's little attention and Baloh is somehow almost written off......

It's a long race, but barring acts-of-God and rookie-crew mistakes, Chris MacDonald from Denmark/USA will stun the Ultra-cycling world by winning with a late come from behind charge.

As for the Ben, the young Alaskan, most likely DNF, you have to ride a lot before you can do RAAM. He and his coach seem to think - that working out and getting in shape is all he needs. Sorry, "no miles in the bank" = no finish.......
