RAW 2002 Photos
In 2002, the RAW lived up to its name, as riders endured on and off rainfall during a dreary and chilly day.  Only the few, the proud, the brave would ride on such a day.  This is their story...

Dynamic duo Richard Fink and Brandon Eller hit the top of the hill, joined by riders from across the area.  We had riders from Boone, Winston-Salem and other towns join us.


Decisions, decisions...The old Jarvis Store rest stop was where many riders asked themselves, "How much fun can I stand?"  Some decided 40 miles worth was plenty.  Brandon Eller (right) climbs the back side of Windy Gap.
