57 miles. 8700+ ft climbing. Boulder, CO start with Flagstaff Rd climb off the bat. Hot air balloons and rude locals. 2500 ft climbing in first 7 miles. Lakeshore Dr turns into rock garden/high maintenance vehicle road. Lunch in Nederland. 505 out of Eldora is jeep road. Alternated between pedaling and hike a bike for 5 miles topping out at 10,000 ft. A lot of cursing on that section. On Caribou Rd I was stopped by search parties looking for a missing mountain biker. : ( I didn’t see anything on the mountain except one elk and an abandoned pickup truck. Saw a moose and mooselet hanging out in a pond. Peak to Peak Rd is a slog up to Switzerland Rd, the third rock garden on the ride. All downhill from there. Hit 40mph coming down into Boulder. Went through a tunnel too! 12 bottles of water consumed.

29.5 miles. 4500+ ft climbing. Elevation at start - 8,500. Elevation at top - 12,200. Up Old Fall River Rd to Alpine Center. Down Trail Ridge Rd. Hit 40mph. Chris said he hit over 50mph. We saw marmot, elk and other small animals. Windy for most of the ride, worse at the top. Thanks to Alan Schenkel and Chris Covey for making sure I didn't pass out from lack of oxygen on the ride.

On saturday march 19th, Matt Macduff sustained a terrible fall attempting to make his way around the Loop Of Doom. After over 3 year of research, determination and hard work, Matt managed to find everything he needed to make his project happen.
Built in a month at the Garden Route Trail Park in South Africa, the gigantic structure rises up to 40 ft. in the sky. The crash left him with 10 fractures in his right wrist and 3 fractures in his right ankle. The story behind his stunt is as impactful as the structure itself. A real story of determination. After spending a week in a South African hospital, Matt is now home in Ontario, working on his rehabilitation. Just as he started to walk again, we catched up with him to get his version of this incredible story.
In previous posts about the Loop of Doom, there was a lot of interrogations from the readers so we did our best to cover all the aspects of the project. Keep on reading to take a journey through the mind of a young man determined to leave an impact on the sport he loves.
