Race Across America, RAAM, it is call the very stronger and powerfull cyclist-hike in America. You have to enter with part of one of another ultra cycling race just. Tamas achieved this in Austria on the Race Across Around Austria in 2011. The distance was 2200 kilometer in 6 days! Tamas says about himself: I am a tourist bicylist who like and can ride a bicycle hard. I like the nature, know each other land and people as well.

The races and the powerhikes show for him his level of temper. The RAAM is the best to this, and nowadays there is not something else a part from cycle race in the world.

Tamas foundant the money to this race and ordered four friends, travelled from Budapest to Overside, than ride a cycle a long. Jeah, 400 kilometer daylist. Waste, mountains, heat, rain but they did not matter. Tamas cycled far away. He overcames the nature and himself too.

He do not know the stand-lock,. When it was needed he gone asleep a little bit. Sometimes it taken one hour in a day just. The result of his incredible physique and his perseverance, Tamas put in the target after 10 days 8 hours and 44 minutes, after more than 4800 kilometer ride a bicycle!

He was the 5th in the RAAM from 46 racers. Marvellous!

Tamas gone to his workplace with his bicycle first. He was lucky because did not use to unique cloth. You can do it if you go a little bit erlier to your workplace. The health worth it and you can acceptable it, really?
