Epic Video: Ride the Divide

If you happen to be lucky enough to be in the Vail, Colorado area you should check out the Vail Film Festival this weekend (April 2-3).

One film that will be featured is called, Ride the Divide.

"Ride the Divide," a film about the Tour Divide race held annually on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, premieres April 2 at the Vail Film Festival in Colorado. Narrative found on the documentary's website describes it like this: "The film weaves the story of three characters' experiences with immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal from Banff, Canada, to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border." One of the trio of characters is Mike Dion, the film's executive producer; another is Matthew Lee, who has raced the route an amazing five times and also serves as the Tour Divide organizer. Word on the street is that Adventure Cycling's field editor Michael McCoy, the guy who mapped the Great Divide back in the mid-1990s, makes a silent cameo appearance near the beginning of the flick.

Here's is the sweet trailer for the film:
