The risk of injury from the Activities is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular skills, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist. I acknowledge that I understand the nature of the Activities and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such Activities. I further acknowledge that the Activities may be conducted over public roads, private roads, trails,land and other facilities upon which the hazards of traveling are to be expected. If at any time I believe conditions of the Activities to be unsafe, I will immediately discontinue further participation and notify Mission Cycling.
- The risks and dangers related to the Activities may be caused by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others, the condition in which the Activities take place, or the negligence of the Released Parties. There may be other risks and social and economic losses either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time and I fully accept and assume all such risks and all responsibility for any losses, costs, and damages I incur as a result of my participation in the Activities. I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES or others, and assume full responsibility.
