Does anyone know of a tourer or racer who's used a folding bike to do the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route or Tour Divide?
Total distance from Banff, Alberta in Canada to Antelope Wells on the Mexican border = 2700+ miles over gravel, dirt, mud, snow and pavement...not to mention the numerous continental divide crossings.

There's a reference made here of a Bike Friday owner doing it some years ago: http://www.cyclechat.net/threads/gre...n-a-lht.82348/ and another mention of a Dahon owner thinking about it for this year: http://dahon.com/single-view-dahon/a...directors.html (see User Comments at bottom of page) + http://www.bikepacking.net/forum/ind....html#msg41235 (see tezza's comments on page 11 of that thread).
Any known folder riders with a full GDMBR under their wheels? It's been done on a recumbent trike (well, a good part of it http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?doc_id=998) and also on unicycles (yup! http://vimeo.com/17852073 ) but I haven't seen much from the folding bike crowd. Eat, sleep and ride the Divide!
