"I have received hundreds of emails and well wishes from people and want to thank you all for that. Many people seem to have an understanding of what happened in Kona to my bike, but the basic fact is that I snapped the front derailleur cable just before the turn around at Havi on the bike.
Unfortunately for me the Tech guys that came to my aid, did not have the gear cable to replace it and after trying to adjust the front derailleur with the lining screws to keep me in the big chain ring, they stripped the front bolt and I was unable to continue.
