Latest from Mark on his first crossing of The Great Continental Divide.

It is hot and hilly riding out here, but going well. Last night a storm came in at the end of the day so I stopped 20km before planned, to hide from rain and lightning etc. Was at Morley River Recreational area where you are not meant to camp but it was fine. Managed to film a good camping sequence once the rain had stopped. Completely eaten by mozzies and everything soaked from the torrential rain in the night, so the tent is drying outside as I grab some food here at the Continental Divide rest stop. There are big gaps between any supplies, so trying to eat big meals and hydrate when I find them.

Keep an eye out for more updates on twitter.
