Jason Shuker - OHIO RAAM Challenge - September 17, 2016

Dear fellow BCC’rs,

 

As some of you might be aware, I have signed up for the RAAM Ohio Qualifier race (September 17th), which requires me to complete a 400 Mile (644km) route.  This is one of the biggest sporting challenges I have faced to date and has required me to train for the past year in hopes of qualifying (considering) for the June 2017 RAAM event.  But first, my focus is on completing the RAAM Ohio race with the assistance of my support team, Bruce Day and Steve Jones. 

 

In stating the above, I am asking my fellow BCC’rs if they could assist me in preparing for this event, by providing (loaning, selling, offering, advising) me with items such as:

 

  • Bike (used/spare) parts (wheels, cassettes, tires, tubes, CO2’s, etc…)

  • Bike Safety Equipment (front/rear lights, vests, etc…)

  • Car Safety Equipment (lights, reflector decals, flares, etc…)

  • Bike Tools (special tools, universal tools… whatever my team can use to fix/change any issues I encounter)

  • Apparel (42-43 shoes, gloves, leg warmers, arm warmers)

  • Tracking & Communication devices (Will be posting on IG, FB and BCC whenever possible… perhaps other ways to follow me)

  • Advice (absolutely open to receiving information, recommendations, tips / tricks, etc…)

 

I am taking two bikes with me:

 

     Primary bike:                     Garneau Gennix R2 Ulltegra 10-speed

     Secondary bike:                Argon 18 e-112 105 9 speed

 

I certainly do not want to encounter issues during this event, but need to be prepared for any issues that arise and any assistance you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

 

Call me if you have any questions or offerings.
