“The Race Across America (RAAM) was won by Robič 5 times (then a record in the men’s solo category): in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010.”
obič was the recipient of the Sportsman of the Year, Slovenian of the year for special achievements, and awards for fair play and tolerance in sport. From 1988 to 1994, Robič was a member of the Slovenian National Cycling Team. During that time, he was also a Slovenian national road champion. In his career he won more than 100 races and was on the podium at least 150 times. He was also a winner of Maraton Franja, Juriš na Vršič..
On 19 September 2004, Robič broke the world 24-hour road record by cycling 834.77 km (518.70 mi) non-stop. In 2005, he won Le Tour Direct, (7d 19h 40m) a 4,023 km (2,500 mi) race on a course derived from classic Tour de France routes. Robič won the DOS-Ras Race Across Slovenia four times, the Tour Direct twice, and the Tortour in 2010.
Robič was renowned for pushing himself to extreme mental breakdown during endurance races. He was laboratory-tested, and his abilities to produce power and to transport oxygen were found matching those of other top ultra-endurance champions worldwide. During the 2004 Race Across America, it was reported that he only slept for a total of eight hours during his eight-day, 2,958.5-mile (4,761.2 km) ride across the United States.
