The wind was ever-present, a constant force blowing north with such regularity that someone might as well have been driving in front of Steamboat Springs mountain biker Erik Lobeck with a fan.“I think I only rode 30 miles not into a headwind,” he said Thursday. That’s saying something, considering the Tour Divide runs 2,745 miles along North America’s backbone, the Continental Divide.
