"I was intrigued by the people who were doing this race. We had everything from a 'super vegan' who tried to make it only eating raw foods to a guy riding a fixed gear mountain bike and was on his third attempt to finish this race. It's a grueling race, but these characters each make it their own, and it was fascinating to see them thrive for support in various ways, including teaming up with each other as riding partners at times."

--Hunter Weeks, director of Ride the Divide, which chronicles Tour Divide is the world's longest mountain-bike race, spanning more than 2,700 miles from Banff, Alberta, Canada, to Antelope Well, which is on the Mexican border with New Mexico.

Ride the Divide screens at Edwards Island at 5:15 tonight. Go here for ticket info.
