The Allied Forces team reached the finish line at Annapolis, Maryland in an official total time of 5 days 3 hours and 45 minutes achieving an average race speed of 24.19 mph, itself a new record.
Strategic Lions teamed up with US counterparts Team 4Mil to form Allied Forces, in pursuit of the RAMM eight-man relay world record which stood at 5 days, 5 hours and 5 minutes.
The riders were raising funds for injured soldiers on both sides of the Atlantic with Strategic Lions assisting Help for Heroes and Team 4Mil supporting rehabilitation programs for Combat-Wounded Veterans. Thanks to all sponsors and people who have donated to Help for Heroes – you can still donate on the Strategic Lions Bmycharity page –
The team have now reached the 55th and final time station across the route and have covered some 3,000 miles. Their total racing time was 5 days, 3 hours and 45 minutes slicing 80 minutes off the previous best set last year.
