Goood thoughts for Neil_B.......

He should be in the recovery room about now. His knee surgery was today.

Best Wishes for Neil. The guy is an inspiration and I wish him a speedy recovery but hopefully he can stay away from the bike long enough to get a good recovery

Good luck Neil!

I think 3 weeks might be a little ambitious, particularly for replacement but certainly 4 weeks is reasonable.
