You could be forgiven for thinking that New Mexico and mid Wales don’t really have much in common and in the main you’d be right. One thing they do share is open spaces, granted those spaces might be on very different scales but they’re still big, open spaces with not much in them.





Perhaps that’s one of the reasons that Greg and Si chose mid Wales for a pre Tour Divide shake down ride … I recall that Aidan Harding used a trip down the Sarn Helen last year for the same purpose. Although the picture shows them stood outside a bothy, they didn’t stay in it (unlike me). They were there to test their kit out and that’s exactly what they did … pitching their Laser Photons across the stream. Their Welsh trip might have only been two days but it proved invaluable in fine tuning the stuff that they’re depending on as they race the TD … Good luck fellas.
