The Great American Bicycle Race 1982: an epic movie.

Just find this on Youtube, and I really want to share: the TV broadcast from the first Great American Bicycle Race of 1982 (the race is universally known as Race Across America but the first edition was called just Great American Bicycle Race).
The race was organized by John Marino and had only four competitors: the same John Marino, Lon Haldeman, Michael Shermer and John Howard.
Here there are the videos:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
Part 7
Part 8
Part 9
Part 10
Later the RAAM became a big event with a lot of competitors and divisions, but I think that every passionate cyclist will enjoy the videos from the first edition.
