You'll need a passport and an empty calendar for the rest of June...

How's your calendar looking for June? If it's wide open, and you fancy a bit of adventure, we might have a gig for you.

Chris Hopkinson is attempting to win the 3000-mile Race Across America (RAAM) in the solo category. It's a big ask and requires full-time support from a dedicated crew, but Hoppo has lost a crew member at the last minute and with departure from Terminal 5 of Heathrow on Friday he's looking to find a replacement. Sharpish.

If you're free from June 7th through till 27th, have a valid passport and are available to come to the US then team leader Martin Cox can promise you the trip of a lifetime. All expenses will be paid, too. You need to be sociable, patient and willing to work hard with very little sleep. It's a 24-hour operation.

Contact Martin via twitter @themartincox or via email martin [at] teamcox.co.uk for more details.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Martin isn't the team leader but he is awake and in the UK right now which is close enough  1

I'm not very good at fettling, I've never managed to successfully change a group set, my tyre changes often go wrong, I never seem to oil the right parts of the bike ...

.... can I come anyway? I make a mean cup of tea  3

I can't tell you how much I wish I could do this! Sadly, I doubt my eight-months-pregnant wife would wear it...

Having just been made redundant I have the time, but no passport. 
Kicking myself for not renewing it.

Stuff that, pull a sickie tomorrow and get to your regional passport office. Heck, if they're laying you off, it's hardly the crime of the century.

Martin, good luck to you and the team - oh and to Hoppo riding it. If I had seen this earlier and had a free diary in June I'd have been there for you, but for both reasons I cant!

Good luck guys!
