Gravel Worlds

“Sorry guys, I DNF’d at Gravel Worlds today. I made it 104 miles and was having some pretty severe heat related issues, despite the amount of fluid I took in, it wasn’t enough.  The nausea and cramping were bad, but when I started to have muscle spasms, that was when I called it a day…”

Fox, on the other hand, called up the strength to finish the race despite being sick earlier in the week. Kevin finished 47th in the Open Men, ad 78th overall.
