This week's Vincent Award goes to Seana Hogan. Seana Hogan is a 56 year-old woman who is entering her 9th Race Across America (RAAM) this year. RAAM is exactly what it says it is, an all out 24-hour a day 10 day long bicycle race across the United States (over 3000 miles long). RAAM is considered one of the world's most grueling endurance event on the planet.

It takes a special kind of person to attempt RAAM once, let alone outright win the women's division 6 times with her best year being a 3rd place overall finish (including the men). This year she is one of 5 women entering RAAM.

Good luck Seana!

Vincent Award #5: Craig Pranther

This week's Vincent Award goes to Craig Pranther who will be riding in the 2014 Race Across AMerica (RAAM), a grueling 24 hour a day non-stop road cycling race from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland. Just participating is this race in my book is enough to win you a Vincent Award, but what really earned Craig the award is that he just had open heart surgery (a double left-coronary artery bypass) last March! If you haven't heard of RAAM before check out the official website or better yet, watch the movie Bicycle Dreams.
