FOAF Crash in Idaho

Crash of a FOAF. Greg is currently laid up with 2 badly broken arms.


Skip to the 1 minute mark for the action. Images of those big rocks coming toward the rider are the kind of thing that will wake me up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night.

That looked bad.

Just really bad timing.

Hope he heals up well.

Ouch, this is one of the videos I have to keep watching over and over. So it pops into my mind whenever I'm about to do something dumb. Speedy recovery rider.

I'm just too damn lazy to hold a grudge. The time invested isn't worth the aggravation it takes to stay mad.
