I'm Doing the Tour Divide Race in 2015!
What is the Tour Divide? It's a 2800 mile single stage mountain bike race from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, NM on the U.S.-Mexico border. The race is unsupported so I'm on my own for everything. If that wasn't enough, there's 200,000 feet of climbing too.
While I have been cycling forever, I am new to bikepacking. This blog is intended to document my learning and experiences with the hope of helping others as they dive head first into this amazing world.
I have spent much of the past 15 years racing mountain bikes. Over the past three years I discovered this crazy thing called training and have suddenly found new fitness and race results to match.
I most recently completed my first season racing Cat 1 single speed finishing second overall in the local Fat Tire Revolution series.
Stay tuned to see where this takes me.
