Piil doing what he can

By Katharina Schulz

Danish veteran Jakob Piil definitely hasn't had the best of seasons this year – most of it was marred by the trouble his right knee has been giving him. After a successful operation in July, the 34 year-old still hasn't been able to return to top form because the knee continues to give him pain during training. Subsequently, Team T-Mobile decided not to renew his contract for next season.

Piil is not willing to give up just yet, but the decision depends on how his knee develops. "I haven't taken a final decision yet. But now I'm going to decide within the next 14 days whether to carry on or end my career," he told Danish TV2 Sporten.

He is still doing all he can to put his career back on track, but his body is not fully cooperating. "I'm still training, but my knee still isn't perfect," Piil noted.
