Great Days - Chile Part 2 - Questioning your Limits

A bit of a warning, part two of this three part series gets a little gory as the Smith team pushes through the final stages of the Andes Pacifico Enduro race.

 " i like enduro because you take your bike to the top of a mountain and ride down with your buddies" so it's like downhill, and every other kind of mtbing for that matter.

 I'd venture to say the worst part of it was when they're actually cleaning it out. Rubbing the swabs in and around the area, squirting the saline in it flush everything out. By that time any adrenaline has worn off. Awful.

 Yup...I'm glad I was unconscious for that. They told me they took the equivalent to a Brillo pass to it...makes me cringe just thinking about it!

 The first thing I always think of in an emergency is to "take my shirt off."

 It is actually a good reaction, depending on the injury...with leg ones like that, it's necessary, well it was in my case I suppose. Had to use it to keep my leg parts together while my buddies helped me down the mountain. Also had to use 2 of theirs and a shin guard on top of that...
