For kings like that, we wait.
Not to mention he left his own bike on the side of the highway when he jumped into the ambulance.
And for riders like John Downs who abandons his epic trek to El Mirador and rode all day to ensure that a fellow rider (and, I believe, total stranger to John) had someone with him in an El Salvadoran hospital.
Pretty impressive stuff.
