1) It is not possible to qualify for RAAM in the unsupported category. It isn´t so, because a very important aspect of ultracycling is the experience riding with a support vehicle.
2) It is not possible to qualify directly for RAAM as a duo or a team for that simple reason, that RAAM does not use qualification criteria for these.
