I hope all of the racers have a kick ass time and a safe race this year. Last I checked there was 41 people lining up in Banff for the start on Friday. The course is 2,745 miles long and will end in Antelope Wells, Mexico. When it's all said and done, these guys and gals will have climbed about 200,000 vertical feet. I hope to try to tackle this one soon but we'll see.
Previous record holder Jay Petervary is returning again this year and will be riding a tandem with his wife. Good luck and be safe JayP/T-Rex.
Chris Plesko will also be showing up with a sexy new white rig this year. Be safe and have fun Pivvay.
Many of the riders will have spots and their will be call ins so it will make for good armchair watching. Check out the tour divide website and the blog for updates.
