Here is a quick summary of her race.

Finished 11days, 20hrs, 54min later with an accumulated average of 10.4mph (including the time she was off bike due to the wrecked vehicle).

Distance 2,962.40miles.

Maria was one of only 2 women to officially finish the race in the solo category this year.

The Unstoppable Award
RAAM Solo Finisher

Her fundraising for Brain Cancer Research continues at 3000 Miles To A Cure.

Fly, Maria!   Fly!


And for you cycling junkies out there, wherever you may be,  The TdF begins.  Perhaps they should rename it the Tour de P.E.D.*  I'll probably still watch it though....
