Go Ram! We'll be touring past his loop, but will get there a day too late to cheer. Wish we could have rescheduled.

What was the final outcome? Did he break the record? The 'LIVE' option isn't updating for me...

Looks like he did 494.8 miles in 24 hours, which is short of the record and his personal best (which I think is around 503 miles or so?). His website suggests that 498 miles is the best time anyone has done this year.

I'm having some trouble logging into his site, too, but looks like he had some trouble w/flats last night.

He's still on his bike, going for the 1,000 k record. The crew just posted a comment about the record -- they say the "outdoor record for a standard road bike" for 1000k is 33 hours, one minute.

He should be able to do 80 miles in less than 8hrs. One record is better than no record!
