This video is not of the faint of heart and you should not watch it if you don’t like seeing blood. That being said, this is a good lesson in how to respond to a backcountry injury.

Cedric Gracia was mountain biking in the downhill marathon race Megavalanche at La RĂ©union island in 2013 when he fell and ruptured his femoral artery.

This injury can result in death if not dealt with quickly. Again, there’s a lot of blood. Fast-forward to 29 seconds to pass the lengthy introduction to the film.
