RAAM winners!

... were on fixed gears! Team Fixies [why did they have to choose that as their name?] won the Race Across AMerica in 8 days. All of their bikes were 48×17 fixed gear and had two brakes to share the workload on long descents. Their maximum speed was 37 mph. One rider was spinning so fast that his chain came off on that beautiful, long descent through Jerome, AZ.

Well....they won the "Fixed gear" category of the race. Not all that many participants in that category... :-)
