2012 Tour Divide
The Tour Divide started yesterday. It is a 2745 mile unsupported MTB race following the Great Divide from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, New Mexico. 104 riders started from Banff, 4 from New Mexico going north. One of the four was my friend, Taylor Zimmerman, aka Cjell Money (in the aviators) who rode to the starting point from somewhere in Costa Rica. A resourceful lad, for awhile he lived in a VW bus behind Black Sheep Cycles, cleaning the shop, filing and grinding, and helping in the construction of his own frame. He also worked into the wee Volkswagen hours making his own bags.
