In June of 2014, Jay and Tracey Petervary were invited to come to Italy to set a benchmark time for a new bikepacking ultra- the Liguria MTN Divide. The route would follow the course used by the eight-day Alta Via MTB Stage Race.
However, they would attempt to ride the route as quickly as possible in a true unsupported fashion. A challenge was presented, and the journey was definitely not easy. Watch the video of their attempts to complete the route and be inspired to start your own journey.
