RAAM leaders expected in St. Louis area today

UPDATED: If you're in the St. Louis area and want to catch a glimpse of the two leaders of the men's division of the Race Across America, today's probably the day.

Four-time champion Jure Robic made it to Jefferson City, Mo., at 12:50 p.m. CDT today, and Dani Wyss arrived in Camdenton, Mo., at 11:15 a.m. today.

If they continue at their current pace, Robic will arrive in Washington, Mo., about 5:30 p.m. today, at the Mississippi River just across from Alton, Ill., about 10 p.m. and Greenville, Ill., shortly about 12:50 a.m. Tuesday. Wyss is expected to arrive in Washington about 7:40 p.m., the Mississippi River at 12:14 a.m. Tuesday and Greenville at 3:08 a.m. Tuesday.

Janet Christiansen continues to lead the women's solo race. She arrived in El Dorado, Kan., at 12:54 p.m. today. She's predicted to arrive in Washington about 9:43 p.m. Tuesday, the Mississippi River about 6:06 a.m. Wednesday and Greenville about 9:09 a.m Wednesday.

In between, many of the teams that started RAAM on Saturday will be catching up with the individual riders.

Keep in mind these times are based on estimates made by RAAM officials and are subject to change. The estimates on the RAAM site are in Eastern time, while I've changed them to Central time.

In case you're interested in seeing the racers, the Washington time station is on Missouri Route 100 just west of Missouri Route 47. They will proceed across the Missouri River through Dutzow, New Melle, Wentzville and O'Fallon before hitting the flatlands of St. Charles County to West Alton. The Mississippi River time station is at a service station just south of the Clark Bridge leading to Alton. Once in Illinois, they will take Illinois Route 140 through Alton, Bethalto, Hamel and Alhambra before getting to Greenville. The Greenville time station is at the intersection of Illinois Route 127 and U.S. 40.
