The first-ever "Cowboy Tough Adventure Weekend" began in Curt Gowdy State Park Thursday morning. Elite athletes from North and Central America are racing about 400 miles through the Cowboy State. The race will end in Casper on Sunday afternoon.
But the expedition is far more than just a bicycle race. Portions include everything from kayaking to pulling handcarts. 
K2's Jim Tarabocchia was at the starting line.
