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!
