Sam Scipio Begins the Tour Divide Bike Race!
The Tour Divide is a self-supported solo time trial where riders set out to tackle the entire length of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route in the shortest amount of time possible. The route covers 2,745 miles and nearly 200,000 feet of climbing (like summiting Mount Everest from sea level seven times) from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, USA. The average time it takes to complete the journey is about three weeks.
