The Tour Divide mountain bike race is an epic challenge in every sense of the word. Running from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, the TD follows the 2745 mile (4418 km) Great Divide Mountain Bike Route through some very remote and rugged territory. Riders are required to be completely self supported with most taking several weeks to complete the entire event.
This year the Tour Divide was won by Jay Petervary, who set a new course record in the process. Jay was able to ride the Divide, start to finish, in just 15 days, 16 hours and 4 minutes. Pretty impressive considering the distance and terrain covered. The video below gives us a glimpse into what that ride was like for him.
