RAAM is a dangerous race

Reports on the RAAM web site this morning state that Gerhard Gulewicz has been taken to the hospital after a horrific crash. Apparently, he was trying to remove a jacket while riding and it got caught in his wheel.

No word yet on whether he will re-join the race. He has dropped from battling for first with Jure Robic to currently 4th place. Not surprising since he is sitting in a hospital.

We wish him well and hope he can get back on his bike soon. If he does, I am sure Rob will enjoy talking to him and, as one of the true veterans in the race (Rob, that is) have some words of wisdom and encouragement for Gerhard.
