REI follows Lael Wilcox during her attempt at the Arizona Trail Race ITT this fall. Many of you know Lael from taking on the Tour Divide twice last summer, in which she set a new record, then beat her previous time. A few months after her ITT of the Tour Divide, she took on the Arizona Trail Race, one of the three big bikepacking races in the United States. Starting at the Utah/Arizona boarder, she traveled 220 miles through open plains, carried her bike through the Grand Canyon, and rode through ponderosas pines. Unfortunately she succumbed to breathing issues and decided that continuing was not worth the damage to her body. Lael is now preparing to race the Trans Am this summer by training and route finding on the Baja Divide in Mexico.
