WHAT IS IT about a challenge that piques our determination and gets our blood pumping? In 2014 AMC member, Scott Picquet, became the 273rd person to ever complete the longest self-supported mountain bike race in the world. The Tour Divide has a failure rate of 60% and traverses the Continental Divide- the entire length of the Rocky Mountains from Banff, AB, Canada to Mexico. The elevation gain is the equivalent of summiting Mount Everest 7 times from sea level! Though not rock climbing, the experience and lessons learned from the tests of endurance and accomplished moments are relevant to all of our inner desires to challenge ourselves and live life to the fullest.
