Holly Warlick will be riding alone this weekend to raise money and awareness for breast cancer care and research.
Warlick, Tennessee's associate head coach for women's basketball, will not be joined by her usual sidekick Nikki Caldwell on a motorcycle ride across the state in support of their "The Champions For A Cause" Foundation. Caldwell, a former Lady Vol player and assistant, was introduced Monday as the new women's head coach at LSU.
"I talked to Holly and our Board,'' Caldwell said. "They understand, (given) what's transpiring right now."
Caldwell, an Oak Ridge High School graduate, said that she still intends to join Warlick next month for the main fundraising ride.
This week's event begins Thursday with a meet-and-greet session in Memphis.
The ride starts Friday in Bartlett and will make stops in Jackson, Dickson and Murfreesboro.
On Saturday, the tour will conclude with stops in Manchester, Chattanooga, Lenoir City and Maryville.
Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson, one of the tour's final stops, has donated a Harley Davidson that will be auctioned to benefit the charity.
