Half of them dont finish--in fact, only 200 racers have ever made it to the end. Outside magazine calls it the toughest test of endurance in the world. RAAM (the Race Across America) is a bicycle race like no other. This epic race is the most brutal organized sporting event youve never heard of and one of the best-kept secrets in the sports world.

Author Amy Snyder follows a handful of athletes before, during, and after the 2009 event, the closest and most controversial in history. Hell on Two Wheels is a thrilling and remarkably detailed account of their ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies. By experiencing the race from the perspective of the racers themselves, Hell on Two Wheels breaks new ground in helping us appreciate how such a grueling effort can be so cleansing and self-revelatory.

This is more than just a race- its a monster, a crucible, an unforgettable allegory about the human experience of pain and joy and self-discovery.
