Tour Divide by Eddie Clark

Tour Divide by Eddie Clark (website | Facebook |Instagram | Flickr , all photos were shot with a D500 and D750 cameras):

My first year of relying solely on photography as a source of income was 2009, which is also the first year I shot the Tour Divide.  Back then the Tour Divide was still very under-the-radar in the bike racing world, and probably less than one hundred people had ever finished the race. This year would mark my seventh year covering it.

For those unfamiliar with the event, the Tour Divide is a self-supported bike race that starts in Banff, Canada and roughly follows the Continental Divide of North America for over 2700 miles down to the finish at the US and Mexico border crossing of Antelope Wells, New Mexico.  Racers must navigate the unmarked course, find supplies, and maintain their bikes all on their own.  Of course, they can purchase supplies, services and lodging, but the gist is no outside support like what you would see at races such as the Tour de France.  There’s no entry fee, no prize money, or even an award- just glory and personal satisfaction.
