Race Across America
The Race Across America is a nonstop ultramarathon bicycle race across the United States and with approximately 3.000 miles/4.800 km one of the longest annual endurance events in the world.
Joining Severin Zotter‘s team as one of two photographers – beside me my colleague and friend Michael Königshofer – was a personal challenge as the race is known for its hard conditions, stressful situations and constant lack of sleep. The mad rumours proved themselves true, nevertheless it was worth it.
Severin’s ambitious attitude and catching spirit made it easy for the team members to forget about their own needs for days to fulfill something bigger and succeed as team. Probably the most drowsy 8 days, 8 hours and 17 minutes of my life.
