Writer and rider Nick Legan talks about his journey from roadie-mechanic to divide-riding journalist, his gear decisions for the race and what bikepacking gear he’s excited about this year. Nick has spent time as a road racer, World Tour mechanic, bike shop owner and writer. He has attempted the Tour Divide twice (2013 and 2015) and is now training for a third attempt at the brutalizing 2,750-mile route. Nick is currently the Technical Editor for Adventure Cyclist Magazine and also journals his experiences on his own blog, Rambleur.
