NiteRider, Australian CEF RAAM Team partnership
NiteRider lights are off on a long journey ‘downunder’. Jason Earick, Customer Service Manager, and Cesar Sanchez, Shipping Manager, are preparing a shipment of NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770‘s, Lumina 750’s and NiteRider Sentinel tail lights to the Australian ‘Crick’ Eastham Foundation RAAM team.
NiteRider are proud to be supporting the only Aussie team participating in this year’s Race Across America. According to team member, Michael Callow the guys at CEF are well in to their training program, and with the days getting shorter as the Southern hemisphere winter approaches, we thought it best to get the CEF team lights “Downunder” so the team can train safely at all hours!
The Race Across America is a grueling event, and it requires meticulous planning and execution to ensure riders finish the event safely. As you would expect, teams spend an enormous amount of time and effort planning and preparing for the event. In the case of CEF we know that nothing is being left to chance, right down to the lights they will use for the race.
We are thrilled that the team reached out to us to supply their lights.
NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770 is the ideal choice for the CEF team
We felt that the NiteRider MiNewt Pro 770 is the ideal choice for the CEF team; it’s a light weight single beam light that offers a run time of 2 hours and 45 minutes which should be perfect for the long nights ahead for the team.
As Michael Callow noted recently, “we’ll go with 770s, both Leon and I are of the view that at night on descents we could outpace the follow vehicle so more light the better!”
Having supported teams in previous RAAM races, we understand that riders need the highest quality, most dependable bike lights available. It is great confirmation to us all here at NiteRider that we continue to be the bike light of choice for RAAM riders.

100% donation to their charity
The team is raising money for Charity with 100% of the funds raised distributed to the charities, with no funds deducted for any race costs. They are all riding for the Crick Eastham Foundation.
The riders have asked and the foundation has agreed for 100% of these funds to be passed onto 2 Charities. In Queensland that charity is Montrose Access. In New South Wales it is Outrun Cancer.
The Crick Eastham Foundation is committed to raising funds for charities that support either Kids, Cancer or the Community. Through support the team at Crick Auto Group and many others, including RAAM race team “CEF Team Australia” we strive to help those that really need it.
We are proud to be assisting in CEF fund raising efforts.
Stay tuned for me information as the RAAMS start date of June 16th draws closer!
