Nope, just solo. They are doing 18+ hours in the saddle.

The roughly 2,500 miles between the Canadian to Mexican borders in just over 2 weeks. As contrast a typical Tour de France covers roughly 2,000~2,200 miles in 3 weeks on pavement. These Divide races are doing it with zero support, on dirt roads and singletrack in one less week.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
