This April 28, 2014 photo shows Marine Maj. Matthew Kutilek in Jacksonville, N.C. After being shot by a sniper in Afghanistan in 2010, Kutilek had no idea the bullet that severed two of the three arteries in his right leg and left him with an open compound fracture of his tibia would lead him three years later to sit on a bicycle seat “the size of a piece of a pie” and ride 6,300 miles. Kutilek said he should have died and “certainly” should have lost his leg. But he didn’t. He not only survived but later this month the 34-year-old, 5-foot-10, 165-pound infantry officer stationed at Camp Lejeune will take part in the brutal Dirty Kanza, a 200-mile bicycling endurance race in Emporia, Kan.
