    I stopped to help a rider today named Steve who had endo'd (faceplant) going down cactus in front of me. Best of luck with the recovery. Thanks to all of the other riders who stopped to help out! Special thanks to the local medics and heli team who arrived within 20min of the call.

    Great job in coming to his aid. Sometimes you never know when you're the one picked for Trail Gods blood sacrifice.

    Ride hard ride smart ...

    @ridinrox Thanks! I felt obligated since his buddy took off down the trail. It was really was nice to see most of the riders stop to lend a hand and direct dh traffic. I initially thought he was dead but he most likely knocked himself out from the spill. 10 riders stopped only 3 had cell phones but only 1 had reception. Lol.
