Interview: Sarah Cooper, ultra endurance biker

Recorded July 4, 2017 in Urbandale, IA  | Subscribe

Sarah Cooper is a really fast biker. Especially over ultra long distances. She won the 2017 Race Across America (RAAM) by riding the 3,000 miles from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD in less than 12 days.

But, she wasn’t always this competitive. Her years spent at the back of the pack in triathlons helped teach Sarah that there are other things to enjoy at the finish line than winning. Though she really does like winning, she is driven by her desire to give every race everything she has.

Kerry found Sarah just 10 days after the finish of RAAM, near her home in Urbandale, IA. They talked about the race, recovering from race-induced injury, and what’s next.
