When: Mid July 2014
Where: Banff, Canada – New Mexico, USA
The Tour Divide is more than just your typical mountain bike race, it’s a once in a lifetime adventure along the longest bike trail in the world. It also forgoes the usual racing formalities such as prizes, entry fees and support teams. Instead you send off a letter announcing your intentions and congregate at the start point.
As mentioned the course is incredibly long. The race takes place on the Great Divide Trail which, as some of you may know, runs from Canada down to the Mexican border, a shade under 4,500km. It’s not for the faint hearted as you’ll be expected to sort out accommodation, food and any repairs need yourself. The Tour Divide is a race that will change you but is the ultimate in open mountain bike races.
