Robic wins race across America

"Slovenia's Jure Robic won the Race Across America trans-continental cycling race for the third time in four years on Tuesday. The 42-year-old ultra-marathon cyclist completed a journey from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean that took him eight days, 19 hours and 33 minutes. Robic peddled 3042 miles from Oceanside, California, over two mountain ranges to this seaside resort just after 8 a.m. and nearly four hours ahead of Austrian runner-up Wolfgang Fasching, a three time winner of the solo event."
