Highlights and setbacks, victories and defeats, emotional moments in the Race Across America (RAAM), anecdotes of 24-hour world records and other racesall this and much more are found in the autobiography of Christoph Strasser, today's most successful ultra-cyclist. The Austrian gives an insight into his world of thoughts and emotions, he says: "The joy in reaching a goal lasts only briefly, real satisfaction comes in the small daily steps on the way there." "The book is not a motivational guide, but an open, honest biography with many insights behind the scenes of RAAM. Above all, I want to shed more light on my weaknesses, and the roadblocks I facedbecause these ultimately led me to continually look for improvements. And I want to share my message that as a "normal" person, you can achieve unimaginable things." "Strasser's Road - The Story of the Record-Setting Race Across America Winner" goes beyond the usual epic hero/sports biography; it teaches about goals, about achievements, and the many steps, joys, failures, and successes along the way.
