If you were going to ride your bike in the Tour Divide Race from Canada to Mexico, would you ride it 2100 miles to get to the start? This girl did.

She is a monster! 183 miles on the first day with full packs, road through a lung infection, and sucked it up despite the route change which took her win. Solid person.

impressive.

I'd like to see the load out for her travels. Where does she get food and water, etc. Camping? I guess she's in a bivy sack. after that everything else would just be ballast.

Spirit: Above all, attempts are intended to be solo / self-supported, self-timed, and observed as one stage, i.e. the clock runs non-stop. The challenge is complete upon arrival to the opposite GDMBR terminus from start. There are no required checkpoints or designated rest periods on course. There is no finish time cut-off, however, current convention considers a competitive Divide Route finish time as approximately 1.5 times (x) course records. Currently this = 25days (~110 mi/day) for men, and 29.5 days (93 mi/day) for women. Item 3 FAQs

Modus operandi: To complete the Route, a rider may resupply food / equipment, rent a room, launder clothing, even service their bike at commercial shops along the way. The intent is to ride unsupported between towns, and function self-supported when in towns. Any services utilized must always be commercially available to all challengers and not pre-arranged[1]. No private resupply, no private lodging.

I think he sort of took liberties with the Arabic, but it's cool.
