Ultra-Rob forges on
Where's Ultra-Rob? The cross-country bike racer from Colorado Springs is holding his own in the Race Across America. Today, he's in sixth place, with 1,345.6 miles behind him. He's almost halfway, and although reports are that an IT band on his left knee was bothering him, he hasn't taken any painkillers.
Ultra-Rob is riding in the Enduro category of the race; last night, one of his competitors (the guy who was leading) was blown off a Kansas highway and suffered road rash and minor injuries.
