From Facebook - commenting on the southbound group. The two leaders are setting a wicked pace. 450 miles of top and down single track in two days is amazing, but unsustainable. I fear they will pay the price even if they are in fantastic condition.
Tour DivideDay 3: The two leaders have slowed a bit. Their blistering pace of 450 miles in two days has taken it's toll. The front of the chase group is within 5 hours now. More big climbs today over Richmond Peak and Huckleberry Pass.
