Red Bull Rampage!

Posted on: October 1, 2010

Jeremy and I hung out at the Red Bull Rampage site today! He got up early to go work on one final thing before the contest started and I slept in til 8:30 or so. He came back at 9:30  for me and we skipped breakfast which deeply upsett the lady running the B&B. She’s crazy. Anyway, we got to the site and hopped on the sides of a Tomcar since both seats were taken! It was crazy. My first experience in the desert like this was sitting on the crate of a Tomcar holding on for dear life! It beat walking though. We got to the event just as it was starting and watched the riders.  It was so intense! The first 6 or 7 people made it down with no spills, but then things got crazy! One rider did a back flip and wiped out. We saw him when he got up. His visor on his helmet cracked and his elbows were all torn up.  Jeremy and I hiked around a lot trying to find good spots where we could see the whole course. It was cool! It was very dusty.  The mountains are beautiful.  We took a break for lunch and then hiked almost all the way up to the top! I was so out of breath! We drank a lot of water but it still felt like it wasn’t enough.  The view from on top of a ridge was so cool! We got to see the riders go by us up close and personal.  I was so tired! After they named the top 10 we headed out on a mission for toothpaste since neither of us brought any.  We got frozen yogurt and ended up forgetting the toothpaste! I thought about taking a run to the store, but I’m still exhausted and I don’t know how far it is. My new plan is to do some crunches, shower, and take a nap! My hair is a dusty mess and I cut my leg coming down one of the cliffs.  I’ve been trying to deal with all of the Windy City Paws stuff, too! So many emails came through today! So much to do! and I brought all my homework!
