Italy’s Paolo Aste finished at 12:52pm EDT today in a time of 9 days, 21 hours and 19 minutes. His average speed from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland was 12.6 mph. Paolos English is practically non-existent, so a crew member translated for his post-race interview with Race Director George Thomas, “He was very hot in the beginning. I had good feelings in the beginning, especially the first two days. Overall I’m very happy,” his crew member said. He concluded by saying, “He want to compliment the RAAM people—it was very well organized. He saw beautiful places He is very tired and wants to sleep, but first he wants to eat! Good idea Paolos.
Paolos grande gara! RAAM vi ringrazia per competere. Congratulazioni. Vedremo che nel 2012?
