Alan Goldsmith pedals toward Stagecoach Reservoir on Thursday after leaving Steamboat Springs. Goldsmith, riding with Dominik Scherer of Germany, traveled from the United Kingdom to Banff, Alberta, to participate in the Tour Divide mountain bike race. Participants follow a trail that mirrors the Continental Divide all the way to the Mexico-United States border in New Mexico. The Tour Divide is one of two races following the trail this summer, both of which will send competitors through Steamboat Springs.

Tour Divide one of the most grueling bike races on the planet

Three cyclists descended Thursday from the rolling mountains above Steamboat Springs. The course they took wasn't unique, as they pedaled along the same highway into town as dozens of other riders.
