The Race Across America is known as the toughest bicycle race in the world. Ultracyclists tackle a solo, 3000 mile coast-to-coast route through 12 states, 175,000 feet of ascent, extremes of weather from blistering hot deserts to wind whipping prairies to freezing cold mountain passes, with little or no sleep, in under 12 days. A plaque awaits the fastest, but everyone who finishes the race is a winner.     Dr. Michael Nehls, physician and scientist, took on the challenge with the support of his wife and three children, making extreme sport a family vacation. His goal was to pass the finish line without suffering, while pushing his physical and mental limits. He learned the key to a relaxed race is strategy: a plan to perfectly balance riding and regeneration, individuality and team spirit, diligence and humor. Along the way, the answers to some of life’s most important questions were revealed. What keeps us moving? How do we push our limits? What leads to failure or success, in the long term, for every aspect of life?     The Race Across America is a microcosm of lessons that can take an entire life to learn. Dr. Nehls offers his best as a take-home: anything is possible with the right motives and strategy.
