I'll just quote the photographer's comments:
David Nice is attempting to become the first rider to complete the Great Divide Race on a fixed-gear bicycle. Not one to believe the naysayers who told him it’s impossible, Nice prepared by putting in 6,800 miles of fixed-gear training in the five-and-a-half months leading up to the race. The 26-year-old whiskey distiller and French-trained chef from Denver, Colorado, marches to his own beat when he divulges that because he rides on a leather Brooks saddle he doesn’t feel the need to wear a chamois. For 2,500 miles. On a fixed gear. Ouch!
Via One Chick. The Great Divide Race started June 15 at the Canadian border in Montana and will finish at the Mexican border. Racers must ride completely unsupported, hauling all of their own gear.
