We found this zone off the highway and hit it up for a short time. James tried to ride a top to bottom but had to ditch mid way down because the soil went from soft to hard. If we had got video of his ditch it probably would be up there with the craziest mountain bike crashes ever caught on film. But we didn't even get a photo. His bike tomahawked over his head and kept going, at one point easily 20 feet in the air. James was running down a 40 degree slope like the roadrunner, then sliding down on his ass at high speed on razor sharp limestone scree. I have no idea how he was ok, just one small cut on his hand. We were sure that his Knolly was going to be sheared in half, but James pulled it out of it's final resting place, 2 feet under water in a creek, and dusted her off and rode it the rest of the trip. Wow Knolly, keep up the good bike building. Geeezzz............

 Def better than the next shot that made POD, really conveys the gradient, much easier said than done. Sounds like a potential POY missed in the described crash!
