Greetings from James Raia
As a journalist since 1976, I contribute sports, business, travel and lifestyle articles to newspapers, magazines and websites. Many examples of my work from the Tour de France to my syndicated car review column for Bay Area News Group to golf and lifestyle features and commentaries are posted on the site.
I have also edited and published the automotive website, theweeklydriver.com since 2004. It features new and vintage car reviews, videos and general interest automotive news.
I have also authored three e-books, The Tour Within The Tour de France, How To Make A Living As A Freelance Writer & Publicist and How To Run And Enjoy The Marathon.
After the first six years of my 13-year tenure attending and reporting on the Tour de France, I co-authored the book Tour de France For Dummies in 2005. My books are available for purchase on Amazon via the hyperlinked titles.
Please enjoy the site and be in touch.
Cheers, James Raia
