Taking on the Race Across America: Meet Team4HIVHope 2011

Sandra Smith, Santa Fe, N.M.

"RAAM is my first experience in cycling and racing. Jim and I have known each other since we were about 12 years old, and he called and asked if I would be the crew chief. I've done a lot of crewing for endurance running events, and he seemed to think I had skills that would compensate for my lack of cycle racing experience. I didn't know what I was getting into. It was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done, but one of the most amazing things I've ever done."
