Well, its not the best kept secret that I enjoyed the Tour Divide, so no surprises that I’m heading back there next spring.
The only proviso is that I’ll do it if the snow-pack is not massive as the year I did it (2011) we had to divert around some of the biggest passes and walk some of the early passes with snow shoes on.
I rode the Flathead this summer and can’t wait to get through there again in race mode. Its awesome up there!
The Tour Divide is 2750 miles long and has approx 200,000′ of climbing.
The race after the TD looks fun. Its 5000 miles from the east coast to the west coast of the USA all off-road. Its being put together by Billy Rice, the first man to yo-yo the TD.
Should I just yo-yo his race the first year he hosts it????
Oh well, back on the bike getting kit dialled and of course a big thanks to all the businesses that are helping me with equipment and advice.
More info to follow soon
