I've managed to tear the meniscus in one of my knees late last week and have been following the doctors orders to do nothing, with the hopes that the outer tear can heal enough for me be able to (just barely) compete in the race.
I'm tossing the idea around of not riding, to save my knee from further damage and surgery. I hate the idea, but it might be the better choice.
I wanted to see if there's anyone out there that would be looking for a partner on really short notice? My riding partner (one of my best friends) is a 20 year old, great guy, solid rider and makes for great company.
Conversely, does anyone have any words of wisdom when it comes to a race of this magnitude and such injuries?
If you might be interested in this at all, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much! Best of luck to everyone.
