I will be making my way to Banff this week to race the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. The Grand Depart is Friday June 13th. For those that are interested in following the race the links are below. I appreciate all of the support and encouragement from everyone in the WMBA

Heard you were at the festival today, sorry I didn't manage to catch up with you before the off.

Good luck, I know the first 1000 miles are hard going!

Wow good luck!

Any more pics and/or explanation of that cockpit?

What what kind of gearing do you have going on in that hub?

Also curious: why not a traditional rack and panniers? Is this more aero?

Take it nice and easy, it's a long ride. I'm jealous as I'd love to be back there again.

They're underway. I'm deeply envious of Lorenzo right now.
It's making me want to train to attempt the route again. His views this morning will be this:
