Tour Divide: Contenders?
I’d have a tenner on Jefe Branham. Fast US SSer, second to Kurt Refsnider in 2011. Alex Harris (SA) is racing again (got 3rd in 2013) and he’s got a lot of experience with this sort of thing.

They start mid afternoon UK time tomorrow..
Seems that the bridges on the Spray River trail just south of Banff that were washed out last summer have fordable water levels or makeshift bridges and the trail’s not too bad overall. A few talking about starting further down the trail perhaps? No idea of snow levels around Elk pass. Wondering how far the leaders will get on day 1. Last year was a pretty fast-running first few days and Mike Hall and a few others made it to Butt’s Cabin ~195 miles in, in the Flathead Valley. There were a few others at Corbin mine 170 miles in. Sparwood (140) or Elkford (110) are the usual day 1 targets in average conditions years.Posted 3 years agocompositeSubscriber

Not long after he posted that thread I got in touch with him. We were going to be doing some training sessions together but he hurt his back apparently and said he was going to be out for a while. Never heard any more after that.Posted 3 years agoElectric WorryMember
I will be watching my mates dot on trackleaders.
This will be his 2nd attempt and the training he has done has been quite the eye opener. I don’t think I can quite comprehend how people race this, even *just* riding it seems like the most daunting prospect to me.
Good luck to all who are participating!Posted 3 years ago
