The Tour Divide Race 2009

Today, the Tour Divide Race Begins!

See the Adventure Cycling Associations press release.

The contestants abilities and mettle are a sight to behold and inspire me to be ultralight and hardcore.

Make sure to check out the official site and last year’s pictures!

It is a great desire to participate in this glory-less race and complete in the allotted time, but alas I don’t have the equipment, fitness or finances to set upon such an endeavor.

In general, I’m not much of a racer. In fact, I really suck at it. However, these ultra-distance events like The Great Divide Race and Race Across America light up something in my brain that makes me want to train consistantly and get a better bike to do such a thing.

Good luck to all 42 racers!
