Adam Ashwill - we'll be hearing a lot more of his name in the years to come. This 17 year old ultra cyclist has accomplished so much in a very short amount of time and only has great things in store for his future. It was in 2015 that Adam was introduced to the famous Race Across America when he and his family setup Time Station #30 in Fort Scott, Kansas out of their home. Adam met Christoph Strasser and immediately fell into the RAAM addiction. Since then, Adam has lost over 50 pounds and in just a couple short years has gone from riding over 200 miles in his first 24h time trial at just 9.9 mph to racing a 100 mile century recently with an average speed of 21.2 mph. Amazing! Adam has also competed in the Texas Time Trials 6hr time trial, the Sebring 12h time trial, and The60 VRAAM race this year. Adam's story is nothing short of inspirational.

Let's roll! 🚲💨

Episode Transcript

I've been an ultra-endurance athlete since 2011. Since then I've bicycled 3,000 miles across the USA to fight human trafficking, participated in the Race Across America (RAAM), ridden twice non-stop from San Jose to Los Angeles (450 miles) and once out-and-back (900 miles), and completed over 50 double centuries, earning me the title of youngest ultra cyclist ever to be inducted into the California Triple Crown Hall of Fame.
