Leah Goldstein Achieves Goal - Dominates 2011 RAMM (Race Across America)

 

On Wednesday, November 24th, the Rotary Club of Vernon hosted guest speaker Ms. Leah Goldstein who is a personal trainer and motivational speaker currently residing in BC. A former professional cyclist, Leah retired from thirteen years on the pro road race circuit in the spring of 2010, following an accident in which she broke both of her arms. At that luncheon meeting, Leah stated that her latest goal  was to participate 2011 Race Across America (RAMM). And participate she did!!

Known as "the World's Toughest Bicycle Race," the formidable 3000 mile course took her from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD over the course of 10 days beginning June 15th and ending on June 24th. Almost half of all solo riders never even finished what was the 30th anniversary version of the race, but for Leah just finishing was not enough. Leah dominated the Female Solo racer category, leading from start to finish. She was the first woman across the  line in a time of 11 days, 4 hours, 41 minutes. Her finishing time and average speed of 11.13 mph was the fastest since 2001.
