You must have been on 259x, your rider was still there and said he was hurting too much to continue but that the bike was fine. I was on 201x and reported his location and situation to Baja Pits and everyone else I came across with a radio. glad to hear he got out.
Those silt beds were ridiculous! There was carnage everywhere
