Tour Divide Racers are a unique breed!
Once you get the idea of the Tour Divide Race in your head - you are cursed!
It is a GOOD curse though! The challenges you conquer, new life-time friends made, the level of fitness you will achieve, the places you will experience, the food you will eat, the pain you will overcome, the beauty you will see.... it is worth every mile!
They ponder the race for years sometimes - they pick a year for their race and then they start going over every little detail in their heads - they weigh everything and they consider the use of every single item they have on their bikes - do they need it or not - can this item be used for more than one purpose to warrant its place on a bike heading for Mexico? They ride and ride and ride and ride and ride and ride to prepare! They go over the route so many times they have it almost memorized - they research other setups and race strategies - it is never ending the details!
WBR can help with getting you and your bike and all your gear safely to the start without hassle!
The 2018 Tour Divide Race Starts June 8th
WBR will run a shuttle for TD Racers on
June 5th, 2018
From Whitefish, Montana to the Banff YWCA
WBR can pick you up at the Kalispell airport (FCA) - shuttle you to the WBR - you can grab a bunk or room and stay for a few days to get your bike ready with a few shake down rides - then take the TD Race Shuttle to Banff on June 5th
Then All You Have To Do Is Race Your Bike To Mexico
See I raced the Tour Divide many years ago before it was cool & I know the planning issues all racers struggle with - WBR is here & dedicated to help my fellow TD Racers!
(At this time 1 shuttle is planned - if interest is there, we will run additional shuttle times to get racers to Banff)
Todays ride was 5 lakes, 2 dogs, endless sunshine and blue skies, 17 miles of hard pack roads and open single track, country music playing in my ear buds (no judgement), a beautiful ridge deck view at the WBR and one hell of an ending when you can ride right up to a comfy lodge to finish your ride!
I am truly blessed that this is my backyard - but the thing is - I am more blessed I get share this beautiful place with our guests and visitors. I fell in love with Montana when I was a young child and its beauty never left my heart. Now I live and work here! You to will fall in love with all Montana has to offer - especially on days like this!
