    Hi Francis. Heard you guys were up here this weekend. It was crazy. The bear came out of no where running at full speed on a collision course for me. I could 't do much. I was coming down county rd 93 and we collided. I thought the whole time he was going to turn around and eat me. He took out my front wheel. I fell on the bear then the ground and broke my collar bone. My wife is sending you the entire story we submitted to the mountain messenger.

    More like, the bear hit the rider! Nuts. Maybe the bear saw someone wearing a GnarCal t-shirt...

    I think the GnarCal shirt should be updated for next year to include an image of the collision.

    I take it the whole story isn't up yet? This sounds like an interesting read.

    Great. More fuel for the FS to shut down MBing in DV. They'll put some twist on it.
