Tour Divide Day 2

As of this morning Kent Peterson is almost exactly halfway between Banff and the United States border. I imagine he will make it to the Roosville crossing by the end of the day if not sooner.

Current leader (and five time winner) Matthew Lee is about 20 miles from the border himself and well ahead of the next closest competitor, veteran Erik Lobeck. It also turns out that besides Kent, there are five other Washington residents participating: Dave Preston (Seattle), Derek Richert (Seattle), Mike Prochaska (North Bend), Brett Foster (Kirkland), and Eric Bruntjen (Roslyn) so I’ll be keeping an eye on how they do too.
