    Downieville - 05.26.07 - Broken Femur

    The guy that broke his femur at Downieville yesterday, Saturday; anyone know him or know of his status/condition?

    His two cycling buddies were nowhere in site. My friend Todd and I found you, and Todd stayed with you amongst a few other people. I tried to get help, but I was riding so fast that I pinch flatted without a pump or tools to make the repair (I'm really sorry). There was a really nice lady, riding with her husband, who jammed by me (she was hauling BALLS) to go get you help. There was another guy, also named Todd, who was on a 250 Moto-X bike who was camping out there near the river. I saw him at a local resident's home calling 911 for help.

    Speedy recovery man. I hope that you're okay.

    Best wishes,
    Mike with RidetheDeath.com
    And all who helped
    Meh.

    I didn't stay around long enough to find out. My buddy jumped off his bike, ran down the hill, and I yelled that I was gonna' go jam to get some help.

    That's all I know.
    Meh.

    After the first bridge, you take that climb up to the top landing area. Then make that really smooth and flowy descent. That's where it happened, less than 5 minutes into that descent.

    Name of trails? I'm clueless. :-\
    Meh.
