The Ultracycling Legend Continues into 2013 and Looking Forward to 2014!
Race Across America 2014 will be the 20th anniversary of Seana's first transcontinental record in 1994. Preparation for this began in 2012: She broke the overall women's 24-hour outdoor track record. She outpaced all of the women to win the Furnace Creek 508 and the HooDoo 500, establishing a new women's course record at the HooDoo. In her longest race in fifteen years, she broke the women's 50+ course record in the Race Across the West. She won the 24-Hour Time Trial World Championship and the NorCal RAAM Challenge. Her training and racing continues intensely and will culminate in RAAM 2014, where she hopes to set women's 50+ transcontinental record.
Remaining 2013 Schedule:
- October - Furnace Creek 508
- November - 24-Hour Time Trial World Championship
Hellyer Park Velodrome 2012

BIANCHI Infinito - Seana's 2012 racing bike.
An Inspiration in the Cycling World for Over 20 Years.
Her never say never attitude has lead her to major lifetime accomplishments. This perseverance has taken her to several world records in cycling. Most notably she has broken the women's transconinental cycling record twice, first in 1994 and second in 1995. Seana has shown time and time again that with a dream, a goal, a good plan and hard work, anything can be done. After over ten years of concentrating on raising her two boys, she has decided to again venture into Ultracyling racing.
"Seana Hogan has been one of the most significant competitors in the Race Across America, as well as one of the most thoughtful and supportive participants in the world of ultra-marathon cycling. Her dedication to the sport was always on the highest of professional planes. She took the sport seriously, trained and prepared professionally, and raced with the intensity deserving our great race. Anyone who ever rode with Seana could not help but think "wow, this must be a very serious and professional sport." To that end Seana is exemplary." -- Michael Shermer, co-founder of RAAM and the UMCA
