GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The world's toughest bike race, Race Across America, was conquered in just one week by Team Endeavour, sponsored by Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services. Race Across America, which started on June 18, required teams to bike from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland. Team Endeavour completed the 3069-mile course on Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 3:47AM after 7 days, 12 hours, and 14 minutes of biking.
The Team Endeavour racing team and support crew are comprised of war veterans who have dedicated themselves to giving back to others by raising money and awareness for military children and families who are suffering through illness, hardship, and poverty.
"Team Endeavour's answer to PTSD and life-changing physical injury is to band together and bike across America, which is a worthy endeavor well worth sponsorship," said Dave Scanlan, CEO & President, Sodexo Government for North America.
Sodexo's sponsorship provided three vehicles and an RV to support Team Endeavour and its crew. The sponsorship also included months of planning and logistics support by Sodexo Government West Coast Operations, located near the start of the race in Oceanside, California.
