This poor dude was enjoying a day on his MTB in Montana, flying down singletrack when SPLAT, he wipes out, flies into a grizzly bear, and is mauled to death. And for his riding partner, yeah, thanks guy.

Personal note: Went to a new PT yesterday who worked me for 90 minutes.  Told me there’s no way I should be out running yet due to severely limited mobility, flexibility, and strength. I trust this guy a lot and will be following his instructions. Ran the Alter-G for 20 minutes and it was awesome.  Hope to be back in a month or so.  If you’re healthy and fit, dammit, get out there and don’t take it for granted.
