Swiss rookie Reto Schoch overcame defending champion Christoph Strasser to win the 2012 Race Across America men’s solo competition. Schoch finished the 2,987.54-mile trek from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis at 9:08 p.m. USA Pacific Standard Time, on Thursday, June 21, 2012. By finishing RAAM in 8 days, 6 hours and 29 minutes, Schoch became only the third RAAM rookie to win the race. Jonathan Boyer (1985) and Swiss cyclist and IWC friend Dani Wyss (2006) are the only other rookies to win.
His average speed of 15.05 mph not only is a rookie record, it’s the third fastest in RAAM history. Pete Penseyres (15.4 mph in 1986) still holds the record, followed by Wyss (15.28 mph in 2009).
IWC congratulates Mr. Schoch on his monumental athletic accomplishment, and will continue to follow his tracks in races to come.
