Dallas has won RAW



It's Official. Canadian Dallas Morris has won RAW. He made it within the time limit and can be proud of his ride. Well done Dallas!
Phone Convo with Dallas Morris
I gave Dallas morris a call as soon as I heard he won the race. Dallas, overcame great obstacles and had a lot of support from friends and family to compete in the Race Across the West. It was a lot of fun to meet him in Oceanside and watch him win his first real ultra-endurance bicycle race. Stone: Congratulations, we are all going to sing O’Canada and drink beer in your honor tonight. RAW Champion Dallas Morris: Thanks, Perry, we turned it into a bit of a ride. Everyone else dropped out so we pulled in at the top of the mountain last night and had a bit of a party dancing under the stars. Stone: You crazy Canuck, you should have drove hard for the net! RAW Champion Dallas Morris: Naw, I was pretty beat up, wanted to savior it, Joe Mann dropped yesterday and suddenly it was there. We are going to have a few beers today though. Stone: Great we are in Kansas covering the race between Robic and Wyss. It is an all out brawl. You should be in this next year. RAW Champion Dallas Morris: Maybe Stone: I’ll call you then, but not before. RAW Champion Dallas Morris: Bastard! Stone: Have a great time, you deserve it, you won a heavyweight fight, last man standing, Good on ya! RAW Champion Dallas Morris: Thanks, Perry
