Team Mama, as I was dubbed by the crews and riders atop Mule Pass, had a decision to make. My kidneys were obviously not doing well. Was it worth the health risk to push on? Bryan and Daniel offered to SAG me to the bottom of Mule Pass and I could finish the 252. Yes, that was an option. I could ride down the pass, or they could SAG me down and I could follow the 92 mile route on back to Douglas. Yes, that was an option.
We sat at the summit for about 30 minutes discerning. Feeling little better, I said, "Let's go back to Douglas and get some sleep."
