“That the dangerous part, when you get too nonchalant about risks like that.” -Kyle Hughes

A harrowing little tale of a bikepacking adventure gone wrong in the Peruvian Andes where an experienced rider made one mistake on an exposed section of trail and ended up at the bottom of a ravine with two broken ankles:

“Three friends set off to explore some areas of the Cordillera Blanca that many people hadn’t visited by bike before. Two days into their 10 day voyage, disaster struck with Kai falling over the edge into a ravine. With two broken ankles his two friends; Nathan and Kyle, keep him company as they await the emergency services to arrive.”
