Tour Divide 2010

It’s that time of year again. Tour Divide 2010 just started out about an hour ago. This year I’ll be paying particular attention to the progress of Issaquah bike blogger, ultra-cyclist and Mountain Turtle par excellence, Kent Peterson. Looks like he’s off to a good start in his quest to reclaim the single speed record.

I was actually kind of bummed out to realize that Kent’s pre-race prolog route took him through Spokane after he had already passed through last weekend. Had I known in advance he was going to be heading east on the Centennial Trail I would have tried to meet up and ride with him a bit. He’s definitely high on my list of people that I want to ride with at some point.
