AAR Creates New VehiclesHide Text
All American Racers has a long history of tackling all kinds of interesting engineering projects. From race cars to planes to motorcycles, AAR rarely shies away from a challenge. At the beginning of 2017, the always smiling motocross champion David Bailey paid AAR a visit and told us of his plan to tackle the ‘Race Across America’ with his fellow legendary racers Doug Henry, Jeff Ward, and Micky Dymond. David asked us if we would be interested in making a couple hand cycles that would be lighter, stronger, and a little more racy than the cycle he was accustomed to riding.
We jumped at the chance. Fast forward a few months and AAR was putting the finishing touches on two beautiful, built from scratch, hand-powered carbon fiber cycles that David and Doug have now used to finish 2nd in one of the most grueling bike races imaginable, the RACE ACROSS AMERICA or RAAM. With support from the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, the ‘Legends of the Road’ team of motocross greats David, Doug, Jeff, and Micky started their journey in Oceanside California on June 17th and battled the elements (especially the heat through Arizona and the rain and wind as they moved East) for 3070 miles to reach the shores of Maryland in just 7 days, 19 hours, and 58 minutes. AAR is proud to be associated with the members of the Legends of the Road race team and admire and share their fighting spirit!
