Tour Divide: Completed!

I made it to Mexico!
I am going to be retiring this site as I am no longer Racing the Divide! But don't worry, you can still read all about my trip at   Thanks for all the support along the way!  I could not have completed this without all the the help from everyone around me.  I am proud to say that I raised $2,300 for Trips for Kids WNC.  It feels good to know that I have helped get kids outside to have their own adventures on bikes.  It takes these smaller trips to learn skills and gain confidence for life's bigger adventures, wherever they take you. Thanks again!

More to Come Soon...

Well I made it!  2,850 miles in 22 days, 4 hours  What an amazing journey! I am humbled at the time and energy that went into the route and race and all the adventurous spirits I met along the way!  Truly a once in a lifetime experience (well maybe twice...we'll see)!

Life is a bit hectic now so I am going to take some time to reflect on this trip and get some things in order.  I will be writing some things down and also have about 1000 photos to go through!  I'll try and get a few up as the days go keep checking back!

Thank you all so much for the support!  I couldn't have done it without you!  Special thanks to Stephen Janes at Trips for Kids WNC for the encouraging words along the way and also to Magic Cycles for all their hard work getting my bike in great working order before the race!  And of course to my amazing wife for putting up with me and my Tour Divide obsession and for being my number one supporter along this amazing journey.
