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.
