Tour Divide Adventure Cycling Race Riders Use SPOT

TdivideThe Great Divide Mountain Bike Route is described as the “battle royale” that “braves mountain passes and windswept valleys of the Continental Divide from hinterlands of the Canadian Rockies to badlands of the Mexican Plateau.” With one single mammoth stage of 2,745 miles, this race is as huge as the West. Starting in Banff, Alberta, Canada and finishing in Antelope Wells, New Mexico, this self-supported mountain bike race took off on June 10 and the participants are well on their way to New Mexico. Tour Divide holds some major credibility because there are no prizes: just passionate riders with blood, sweat and tears. Check it out as the clock runs non-stop!
