Day 2 – Illness

Hi Everyone, Grace is okay… We wanted to wait till later to share this video with you and the current situation. Thursday the day before the grand depart Grace became ill. She has a really bad cold and a nasal infection. She was able to see a Doctor Thursday and get some meds to get her down the road. Grace completed 103 miles and almost 8K of climbing on the course yesterday and landed in Elksford. She woke up a little sicker today and after speaking to her coach Kym a decision was made for Grace to stay put and continue on when she is better. We hope this is tomorrow and will let you know here.

Please share well wishes in the comments, Grace could use some positive energy right now.


Photos below are from Grace on the course yesterday.

    So glad you got meds. This is going to be a minor setback. Get LOTs of rest while you can and you will be out there soon enough.

    Take ur time and feel better Gracie.
    Remember our conversation in the Snake Pit tent; It’s about riding a bike and having fun doing it.
    Relax and enjoy the entire experience of it. Even these little hiccups.
    You got this 👊
