From sprint triathlon to the toughest bike race in the World – an interview with My Challenge HQ.
“Fresh from becoming the first British solo female to complete Race Across America (RAAM), ultra-cyclist Shu Pillinger visited the GSK Human Performance Lab for post-race body composition assessments.
The HPL’s Sports Nutritionist, Ana Anton-Solanas, was part of “Crew Shu” – Shu’s support team who helped with everything from food and drink prep, physio, massages and driving the support vehicles to doing the laundry and even washing Shu’s hair. Ana took Shu’s body composition measurements and joined us as we spoke to Shu about her RAAM experience.”

Episode 3 of The Cycle Show, shown during the Tour de France 2015, featured myself and Chris Hopkinson talking about RAAM.
My RAAM finish makes the Evans Cycles Blog.
“It is 30% longer than the Tour de France yet participants must finish in half the time. They must fund themselves and their support crew, and survive for days on minimal sleep. Riders have little company bar radio contact. There is no-one to draft when the going gets tough. Welcome to the Race Across America, the world’s toughest endurance bike race. And congratulations to IT specialist Shu Pillinger, who has just become the first female Brit to complete the daunting 3004-mile feat within the 12 day, 21-hour women’s time limit…”
