RAAM: We have a winner!

Congratulations to Slovenian Jure Robic, who won the male solo edition of this year's Race Across America -- the third time he has won the race. Robic made to the finish line in Atlantic City, N.J., at 7:03 a.m. CDT. His nearest competitors, Wolfgang Fasching and Gerhard Gulewicz, had less than 65 miles left to go as of this morning.

Robic completed the 3,042.8 miles of the race in 8 days, 19 hours and 33 minutes. His average speed was 14.38 mph.

As of today, only one team has yet to reach the Mississippi River. Team Kitten -- Pete Maisel and Wendy Gardiner of Acworth, Ga. -- is the only remaining team in the two-person mixed division. They reached Marthasville, Mo., at 2:06 a.m. CDT today.
