I hope the other riders showed proper etiquette and didn’t attack when the Yellow jersey was down.

You should ride the Ridge. Not as dramatic, but still solid pucker factor.
Ahhh big nope.. I already took a serious fall once in my life, no need for a second time around. Having a leg in a traction splint for over a month was more than enough for me. The rider in that video was probably in a serious world of hurt after that just based on mechanism of injury.

On what section of 6MR did this happen? @Patrick I think you need to install a handrail there...

Actually there is a place @ 6MR where I almost went straight down about 20 ft to the creek. The first alley-oop on red (after white) going back to the canal lot. I stayed as far right as possible, back tire lost traction and skidded and half my bike went over the edge.

Never gonna let you down.
I did something similar in Sedona. Thankfully it was a section of trail with a lot of brush and didn’t just go straight off the mountain. I still rolled 15 feet off the trail but was unscathed.
