We are getting some sad news this morning that our good friend, hardman and multi-Tour Divide athlete Erik Lobeck has had to drop our of the race due to ankle injury.
The above photo (which I hi-jacked) was taken over the weekend as he tackled one of the early sections of snow.
Not too sure if he tweaked his ankle in the snow or what. Hopefully we get more info soon.
All of us at Moots wish him the best.
