Description

Haunted by the loss of his best friend to cancer, unnerved by turning 50, and motivated to raise money and awareness for a cancer charity close to his heart, Brent Goldstein undertook an epic adventure in June, 2018 - the Tour Divide mountain bike race. The Tour Divide is a 2,731+ mile self-supported, off-road journey down the U.S. Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico. Race rules prohibit help from friends or family. The bikes don't have motors. Food options are limited. Water often has to be culled from creeks. There is abundant mud . . . and snow . . . and jagged rocks . . . and steep trails up and down colossal mountains. Most riders drop out in the first week. In Divide and Conquer, Brent weaves a colorful, soulful, graphic, and humorous tale of grit, guts and determination. He further reveals how friendship, philanthropy, reinvention, and a higher purpose can inspire an average middle-aged guy to not only put life on hold to tackle a challenge of unfathomable magnitude, but to push on when every muscle in his body and cell in his brain screamed "QUIT. . . PLEASE!" This book brims with stories, narrative, dialog and information that could spur the most sedentary reader to jump off the couch and embrace a challenge.
