Ultra-endurance cyclist and Guinness World Record holder, Juliana Buhring, is out of the Race Across America (RAAM) at mile 887, after showing symptoms of pulmonary oedema.
Buhring had experienced breathing difficulties early in the race, but it wasn’t until she began coughing up blood her support team, Team Juju, were alerted. It is thought she was suffering pulmonary oedema, a condition in which fluid accumulates in the lungs.
The Fastest Woman Around the World, and author of two books, finally pulled out of the 3000 mile race yesterday on medical advice, but is said to be recovering well. Fans rushed to wish Buhring well in her recovery.
RAAM, the epic 3000 mile single stage race, begins today
In an update her team said: “She experienced breathing difficulties early on in the race and, being Juju, she didn't let us know about it until she started coughing up blood.
“She was also showing early symptoms of the dreaded Shermer's Neck - having trouble holding her head up. Coach and paramedic Billy Rice took the decision to pull her from the race at Cortez, when it appeared she was suffering pulmonary edema and carrying on could have been detrimental to her long-term health, and even caused permanent damage.
“She's now recovering under the watchful eye of the team, and enjoying the fact that her stomach will now accept food again. We'll send out some more updates over the next few days, along with some of our happy (and unhappy) memories from the road.
The team thanked Buhring’s supporters and wished those still racing luck with the single stage race, which is longer than the Tour de France.
Should be fine with the cassette anyway, "Hey, it says for teeth cleaning, it doesn't define what sort of teeth, does it?"
Sure, but will it be a fair test? If they just ask them to spot a cyclist dressed in black not wearing a helmet, at 30 yards, naturally they will...
I can see why some people would prefer not to use paths that appear hidden away and secluded. However I suspect that many of the complaints come...
I'm personally glad not to have to read this particular username again.
Demonstration was great but not so keen on husband recent stuff
British Cycling are far more concerned about the culture wars than cycling. Well past their sell-by date.
No doubt, being Bath, the charges will relate to damaging a UNESCO site and nothing to do with motor offences.
Aye! It's tough for drivers oop in t'North. In Lancashire, even the MOT testing garages can't afford MOTs!
Maybe they'll employ some sniffer dogs? Note - it's the City of London rather than being London, the city which would be much better.
I would definitely recommend looking at the hase pino, they do a kit to put kid sized pedals on the front so your child can participate. But unlike...
