Depending on what city she is in, I may be able to establish an even more local number so that she can dial it from her hospital room phone (you can PM me that info if you have it).

If you speak to Jen, please let her know about those options.

Thanks, and good luck JMo!
Thank yo - PM sent to you x

Meh. It's the Dakar as we all know it.
She'll be bolted & plastered together nicely, I reckon. Bones heal relatively quick, but tendons and ligaments need longer rehab periods and proper training.

I suggest my 5 knee-bolts and her assumed bone-bolt-job qualify for exclusive Bionic Riders Rehab Club (BRRC) membership. My job at least don't trigger security alarms at airports, but I miss a watercooled knee when it starts swelling. A WD40 lubrication valve also wouldn't hurt the periodic squeaky knees I occasionally suffer. Oi there, Jen --> Good luck with surgery!

Thanks so much for keeping us informed Katie.

Figured I share a pic of Jen in happier times. April, 2009, Death Valley, Ca., with my wife.

Yup - attached to a fan-cooled device. I foresee a glittering market potensiale for Adv-Rider & Dakar rider spare parts and support technology. When my knee starts acting up I would ideally hog the spare parts bin from my F650 Dakar and adapt something like this zerk contraption:


Alternatively this:


Jenny's setup may of course differ somewhat - depending on the overhaul she now gets. No reason to despair yet

KOOL! Based on the events of Stage 5, there may also be a market for something similar for at least one wrist, a collarbone, and who knows what all else before it's over.

Nice bearing packer, too.

Stay focused!

Jenny, Use the same drive and determination that got you through the various stages of the Dakar (and inspired all of us) and apply it to your recovery effort. While it may seem dismal now, soon this will be just another one of your war stories. And thank you again Katie Em for keeping us informed. Keep us updated on the recovery!

I say throw Piglet in either Bounds or Pavey's backpack. Get Piglet to the finish line and get that finishers medal. Piglet is listed as Co-Diver isn't he?

Go Piglet!

JMo, when you get back to America, steak and beer is on me. Of course, I will ask a millions questions about Dakar.

Having surgery in a foriegn country is very traumatic. Let's have positive thoughts and meditations for her. Good luck Jenny.
