The 2014 running of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Race officially kicks off (perhaps that should be "pedals off") with the Grand Depart from Banff, Canada, on Friday, June 13th. However, not only does the race format not require that riders start their Individual Time Trial on that date, it also permits a northbound departure from the southern terminus of the route. There are already riders on the trail. You can follow them here: http://trackleaders.com/tourdivide14 . Good luck to all.
