By David Houghton
David's third book captures the unique and incredible history of the Race Across America, a legendary, non-stop cycling race from California to Maryland. The Race Across America is one of the most respected and feared endurance events in the world.
The book covers all the hallmarks of the Race Across America over its 27-year history, including sleep deprivation, unimaginable levels of pain and bouts of vivid delirium. Houghton sifted through thousands of pages of rider diaries, race reports and media coverage to give the most complete picture ever assembled of the race described as a ‘sufferfest of obscurity.’
