Lifelong Athlete Race Team Solo Rider Terry Bork

About

My name is Terry Bork. I am  a businessman, prostate cancer survivor, grandfather and solo endurance racer for the Lifelong Athlete Race Team.  As a lifelong athlete, I have always placed a great deal of importance on health, fitness and athletic competition. After my first endurance cycling race in 2011, at the age of 63, I discovered endurance racing to be the perfect venue for testing my physical limits.  I feel strongly that age is simply a number, and strive to “stay in the game”, continually get better and compete at a high level against the best endurance racers in the world. In addition, endurance racing provides a platform to raise money for causes I feel strongly about.

There are two types of endurance races, both compete against the field. The first is racing a defined distance. Distances begin at 100 miles, with the ultimate Race Across America (RAAM) covering 3000 miles. RAAM is widely acknowleged as the "toughest bicycle race in the world" and must be completed in 12 days. The other type of race is completing as many miles as possible in a defined time...12 or 24 hours. To compete in RAAM requires qualification, which can be accomplisted by meeting identified standards in RAAM sanctioned timed or distance races.
