The Tour Divide has started for 2009.
I for one am rooting for Deanna of http://ultrarunbikevegan.blogspot.com/ YOU GO GIRL! This young lady is going for it as she always does! Banff Ca. to Antelope Wells New Mexico! Cheer her and all the racers on!
Tour Divide is a solo, self-supported mountain bike race on all 2,745 miles of ACA's epic Great Divide MTB Route. With an average time-to-completion of three weeks in the saddle, this grand tour is the longest, most challenging MTB race on the planet. It's a contest for the ultra-fit but only if ultra-prepared for myriad contingencies of backcountry biking.
