Tour Divide Win for Ollie!

Kiwi Brevet veteran, Ollie Whalley, has just set a new Tour Divide record. His time of 16 days and 2 hours for the 4,420 km MTB ride from Canada to Mexico is truly amazing. And he managed to ride most of it with a really nice Canadian chap by the name of Craig Stappler. Double win!

Really looking forward to his account of the trip. In the meantime here's part one of an article from Colorado's Mountain Flyer - http://www.mountainflyermagazine.com/view.php/2012-tour-divide-part-1-the-northern-half.html
and there's some great audio coverage here http://mtbcast.com/site2/

Nathan Mawkes, who also cut his teeth at the Kiwi Brevet, is still out there and hammering along at an impressive pace. We expect him to finish in about a week. Good luck Nathan!

  2. Hi,

    I hope that this email finds you well.

    I recently came across kiwibrevet.blogspot.com whilst researching the Travel and Vacation sector and would like to discuss the possibility of paying you to display an advertisement on the site.

    We have a large customer base of clients prepared to pay to display discrete adverts, contextually matched to the content of the page on high quality sites like yours, and this can be a great way to generate an income without compromising your website.

    Please email me back if you would be interested in finding out more and I will send you a follow-up email outlining the opportunity in more detail.

    I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

    Best wishes.
    Damien Cvetanovski
