Tour Divide Mountain Bike Race
July 3, 2008

Mary Collier is riding in the Tour Divide Mountain Bike Race this year, a 2711-mile trek from Banff, Canada, to the New Mexico at the Mexican border.

She stopped in at Rock Rabbit in Pinedale on Wednesday to get some ice cream with $10 that her friend, Mike Dion, left there for her. Dion is filming a documentary of the race and the Continental Divide Mountain Bike Trail route that it follows.

Mary is from Idyllwild, California.

Seventeen racers started the trek on June 13th. The racers have dealt with mud, snow, bears, tunnel cave-ins, constant mechanical issues and more. There is no entry fee or prizes in the race. Racers who volunteer to carry a SPOT Messenger are tracked real-time on a Google Maps leaderboard.
