This year SPOT Inc. has partnered with the Tour Divide to equip each racer with a SPOT Satellite Messenger, which provides online GPS tracking of each racer on Google Mapsâ„¢. New SPOT shared pages functionality, currently in beta format, will post the last updated location of the racers on a Google map, viewable online throughout the race. Fans can also follow the action on the Tour Divide blog.
On June 20th, at the Montana/Canada border, another group of riders will set off on the route’s original raceâ€”the fifth annual Great Divide Race, which covers the 2,490-mile American portion of the route.
