Everyone can probably imagine how we're all feeling.
Not fair! They should have a rule like they have for WRC where you can continue the next day with a big time penalty....

For a second, Robb said he froze up. Then Benoit said that it was a terminal mechanical failure and that Jonah was OK. So, a bit of relief there if you put it in perspective.

Ned is back to the bivy

Sounds like he had a great day

Jonah milked his bike off stage to the end of the special (around the dunes) and left his bike with the staff for the sweeper truck to pickup and is getting a ride on some dudes atv back to the bivy.

Was really hoping for a better outcome for Jonah. Just glad he's physically okay.

On pin's & needles wondering where BC is.

My gut aches

Deadly, being there as a team member and writing the book, I can only imagaine the shock/feeling/the facial expressions that must have happend when the news came through on Jonah. I look forward to your verbal writeup.

Our "Good Try" goes out to Jonah and "NEVER GIVE UP ' to the team and all the riders still in the hunt.
