Karl Wilcox's Knee Pain Causes him to Pull Out of Race - Helena

Racer update about:

Hi this is Karl Wilcox phoning in at about 10AM from Helena. It's Thursday morning. I'm going to be dropping out of the race. My knee pain is severe. Can't really peddle at this point. So I'm going to pack it in before I end up with a chronic knee injury. I think I pushed too big a gear. Should have dropped to granny gear, but live and learn. It has been an excellant race. I've enjoyed every minute of it. I will of course miss the rest of race. But just want to thank everyone out there for following. Really, at least, I did the best section. Hopefully try again. Thank you.


Live another day. Good

Live another day. Good decision. Good Job.
I have hurt my knee pushing big gears in the cold. Took months to heal with easy spinning and leg warmers on any day but a scorcher.

Knee and stuff

While you are still in Helena if you need something give a shout.
I'm out in canyon creek, living large.

sorry bout the knee.

Tough to hear that you had to pull, but knowing how tough you are this had to be a tough but right decision. Congratulations on evening taking the tour on - and for perhaps going through the toughest part of the ride.

Here's to you - tough guy!
