Is this the place for this? Oh well, some of you might find this documentary to be of some enjoyment. "Ride the Divide" is a killer documentary following a group of UL mountainbike riders along 2,700 miles of the CDT. Here's the link, it's only free until Midnight Pacific time, after that it's private and costs:

It was very entertaining documentary, showed some cool insight into an underground event I didn't even know was going on. It was cool to see the racers ride through my "neighborhood" in southern new mexico at the end of their journey.

What's interesting to me was how each person dealt with the isolation or didn't deal, considering they covered far more ground than a CDT thru-hiker in far less time, some of the riders succumbed to the isolation rather quickly in my opinion, but I'm not a thru-hiker or Divide Rider so what the hell do I know? But, even with a crew nearby, frequent town stops, and resupply points some riders were buckling under the isolation and long days pretty early on. This only reaffirmed what a beast Skurka is and his ability to endure the mental and physical hurdles of extended isolation in remote areas. The social aspect of the journey in the film seemed to be the one thing that kept many riders sane and going forward.
