7 Bikes of the Tour Divide
@boogie80: I don't think much of one-sided and quoted-out-of-context stories being purported as journalism. But what do I know I've only been covering the Tour Divide since 2009, have a listen to Jay's side of the story. https://gearjunkie.com/podcast/jay-petervary?fbclid=IwAR0_PVsO7nIKPMvmKCR5oSgjpfcFlG1gmRqN8HMfiBLgIT8ZTsq_LWQnApw

7 Bikes of the Tour Divide
The 2012 edition was won by Oliver Whaley on a Ventana with a belt drive and Rolhoff rear hub. There are a very few people that ride the TD on belts, and they're usually further back out of the media coverage. Main reason is most people don't want to run a singlespeed or Rolhoff rear hub. Lot''s of climbing and fast downhills to lose time on singlespeed, it really takes a special person, and finding a spare belt would be mostly impossible for much of the route. Oliver carried a spare belt and had to use it as he lost some teeth on his first belt part way in. The Rolhoff hub has gears, but they are very heavy and will need a gear oil change at some point. Either singlespeed chain or 1x11 or 1x12 chain is the way to go.

@taprider: Look, I know Lael, I've personally talked to her, I like her, and I think she is an amazing person and an incredible cyclist who will continue to break records and inspire many many people. However, the real problem with her ride and all the drama that ensued was not the presence of a media crew as there have been many out there, including myself, over the years. Instead, the main problem was Rue being a part of her media crew, which went in clear violation of the long established TD rules (section 4). Personally, I saw her crew out there twice (south side of Union Pass and in the Great Divide Basin), and in both instances Rue would have had to be hiding behind their Subaru or laying down in the backseat with a blanket over her for Lael not to see her. I didn't hang around in either case to see what actually happened, and if you watched the film it's obvious of how those situations most likely transpired. And that is the rub. If you've ever raced bikes, I have, then you will understand how seeing friends or family will inspire you to try harder to go faster. These are not my rules, they are fact. All that said, I can't wait to see what Lael does when she rides it as an ITT next year. I also think it's interesting that Alexandera Houchain, the women's winner, was not interviewed (or if she was it wasn't included in the film). I will also go on to say that while many racers were waiting at Brush Mountain for better conditions, Alexandera was out in the Great Divide Basin pushing and carrying her bike through ten miles of un-ridable mud. She did not wait, she just kept trying. Meanwhile, Chris Seistrup was also making forward progress, after dealing with the same conditions on Sand Pass earlier the same morning, in some of the worst ever conditions in Colorado- I was there, it sucked. I later asked Chris about that, and part of his training the prior winter was to go out every time it snowed to practice riding and carrying his fully loaded bike in those conditions. Everyone has decisions to make, and they are not necessarily right or wrong.

It is the same rule that everyone who has successfully and respectfully raced the Tour Divide has abided by. Emotional support IS Support. If you can't play by the rules you need to find a different game.
