RAAM Winner, Strasser, Also Wins Europe's Toughest Cycling Challenge, The Race Around Ireland

Christoph Strasser , the Austrian who became RAAM's fastest cyclist when he covered the 2993 mile course in 7 days, 22 hours, a few months ago (June 19), recently won the 1367 mile Race Around Ireland.

Billed as Europe's Toughest Cycling Challenge, he completed the 4-year old race in 3 days, 21 hours, for an average of 23.69 miles an hour! And extra admiration  is due indeed, these roads are tough over here. They have much roughed up all three of the bikes I use to roll on them, Especially the Eagle...

Add the heavier air because there is so much moisture in it, and this guy's feat is truly amazing!!
