The Flog Ride v. 2.2 was a huge improvement over the last 48 times. Rather than bombing the descent and crashing in the hairpin we pulled over and regrouped in the parking lot of the golf course, where Rico crashed into a curb at 5 mph. This proves an axiom: No matter how safe you make something, stupid can make it lethal. Fortunately Kirby was unhurt except for the vicious bruising and abrasions to his ego. It was also a reunion of sorts, with all three crashing victims in the entire history of the Flog Ride present along with the newest inductee.
