We spoke about his involvement with RAAM, consequently my enthusiasm was apparrant and Lon lent me a DVD showing the early history of the inception of RAAM before it was called the the Great American Bike Race in 1982. I graduated High School around this exact time.
This was a very good day. I have often wondered about how Lon was doing after all these years and was impressed with his appearance. Once a bike rider always a bike rider. He leads bike tours with his PAC Tour company and it shows.
Tomorrow the athletes will line up to follow a route across the country that Lon Haldeman crossed so many times and I thank him for the effort he made to such an amazing race which we now call RAAM.
