NEW RECORDS SET ON TOUR DIVIDE
Chris Seistrup put in a stellar ride to finish the Tour Divide in 15D 11H 24M and a flurry of riders followed in the couple of days after. First woman Alexandera Houchin came in after 18D 20H 26M and with that time set a new women's singlespeed record and the women's first back-to-back TD win.
