In 2017 a Help for Heroes team of eight wounded, injured and sick veterans and service personnel will take on one of the world's toughest endurance cycling events, the epic 3,081 mile Race Across America (RAAM). Please support the team as they prepare to push themselves to the limit both physically and mentally in the pursuit of finishing the RAAM in under seven days.
On the 6th January, myself and the team met at Heathrow Terminal 3, this is the first time I have seen them all since our training camp in Chamonix back in September. I missed the last and final training camp in November as I was on another expedition, cycling the Carrera Austral.
