When childhood friends Colin O’Brady and Lucas Clarke reached the Race Across America finish line in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday evening, they may not have fulfilled their “Sub Six” goal, but celebrations were in order all the same. 

The duo had left Oceanside, California, on June 15 and spent the following six days conducting a two-person time trial —with each rider completing a 90-minute stint at a time— across the entire width of the United States for a total of 3,064 miles with more than130,000ft of elevation. Averaging 20.33mph, the duo reached the East Coast finish line in 6 days, 6 hours and 43 minutes, shattering the previous record for the pairs category by approximately 5 hours.
