This is one of my favorite images from the 2015 Tour Divide. Jay Petervary (JayP), the TD record-holder, pushed the pace most of the race. He was overtaken just south of Silver City, NM by eventual winner and new record-holder, Josh Kato. Third place went to Neil Beltchenko. The trio pushed each other and they all finished in less than 15 days. My hat’s off to all three!

Josh’s secret weapon: he’s always smiling. You can read about his 2014 race here:
It’s an excellent read and makes his victory this year all the more memorable.
