So it's 10am and we destroyed $10,000 worth of camera lens and Ken's foot is swollen. We get him to a tarmac road (US 285?) and he's off to Gypsum while Justin & I dove back onto the BDR. The route went from two track onto freshly bulldozed forest road with trimmed branches. It was fun roller coaster riding with the branches trying to snag you. I certainly got my share of cardio that morning! Then we got our second water crossing of the day; no big deal. The first peak was shortly after, easy peasy. And then it was easy gravel on Weston Pass Rd to Leadville. But not easy enough for my X-Grip phone mount, it ejected the iphone for the second time, breaking its' screen. After replacing two phones and three screens on this trip, you can say I hate the X Mount. It's NOT for Adventure riding! After a snack in Leadville, alright a pizza, we headed up a dusty road towards Hagerman Pass. Once you start making the climb up Hagerman it gets rocky. No big deal, really. Just pick your line and thread through the big stuff. And it goes on and on. Remember Rule # 1 in Zombieland? Cardio? Well, I just ate a pizza and hadn't done cardio in like 7 years? So I was pretty winded from pounding rocks at high altitude. We were almost to the top. One big switchback to the left where some jeepers were standing around scoping their own lines for a descent. I had two choices: the highline on the mountain side or the lowline along the cliff. Between the two lines was a rut filled with very big rocks. I chose the highline, thinking if something happened I'd fall into the mountain. That choice ended in a step up too big for me to clear. I stopped to look for options while balancing on the pegs and fell over; not into the mountain but down on the boulders! Ouch. Luckily, I jumped clear of the bike and landed on my knees and elbows, the Klim armor soaked up the impact. The bike was wheels up on an uphill slope. I was gasping for air and Justin was laughing over the intercom. With arms and legs like noodles, no way we're righting this upside down pig by ourselves. Then, our new friends with the jeeps came running down to assist!
