are you missing a dead guy?

me and my friend got bord last Saturday and went out for a mtb ride. We spent about 3 hours on the lower level trails and we thought we would try a harder trail little did we know it would end our day FAST.

i was leading for i was the faster rider and it was not uncommon to leave my friend a few secs back so i would stop and wait for him ever now and then. about half way into the trail from hell we pass 2 guys we chat it up for a while before we pass them. i get to a huge down hill in the trail with a really sharp turn at the bottom i yelled back "look out mike it gets bad up here" i go on a bit look back see my buddy is not there so i was like dang i went a bit to fast. after about 2 mins i get wondering what happened then i see those 2 guys we passed come up and one says are you missing a dead guy in a state hat? i was like dead guy? what happened he man said to me he got rocked by a tree, hes back there a bit i PEALED his bike of him. i sad thanks and went to see what the **** happened to him i got there hes holding his head and just looked sick.

it turns out on that down hill he cut to short and the inside part of his bars clipped a tree and he fell to the outside and did a face plant into a nice oak tree!

hes kinda fine he be back by next weekend but he was toasted that day.


lesson of this story trees will not bend for your face.

Where do you get "bord"? I've never had "bord".
Now, you were like a dead guy or your friend was a dead guy? I'm confused.
Did he hit a tree or a rock? Again, confused.
Why were you sad?
Where did the toast come in?

So the two other riders just passed him and left him there tangled in his bike? Classy.
