Prior to the start of this year's 35th edition of the Race Across America (RAAM) there were a number of ultra-endurance bicycle racers that fans were touting as possible contenders, but few included rookie Pierre Bischoff on their list.

As of Sunday evening he was riding in Missouri, with the second place rider about 60 miles behind. But there's still over 1,300 miles to go before Bischoff can claim victory in this race from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md. Expect Bischoff, or whichever rider manages to catch him, to finish sometime Thursday or Friday. Watch the race's progress at
