I came around a corner on the upper part of First Divide this afternoon (approx 1645) and came upon a bunch (maybe eight) of bikes leaned against the rocks to the left of the trail. Went around the next corner and came upon the group of riders as well as another set of bikes and riders. There were also two or three rescue workers with radios. They were all standing there on both sides of the trail, mostly looking over the edge. I'm pretty sure someone said that a rider had gone over. I for sure heard one of the rescue workers mention getting a transport. I walked through the at the request of one of the rescue workers and came upon an ambulance parked on the trail within the next quarter mile. Some red and white, fat tired dirt bike thing was heading up the trail as well...
The whole scene had an eerie feel to it. No one appeared to be scrambling or in a rush to get the rider back up on to the trail. Just thought I'd put this up to see if anyone had any more info. There was also a group of three or four emergency vehicles parked where the trail hits the fire road and diamond link fence..
Best wishes to the rider and friends involved. There was a large group. Hope everyone made it home or at least into the right helping hands.
