416 words - 2 pages

I glanced back and saw a huge mound that must have been what catapulted us into orbit. Adrenaline was running through my veins like high-octane fuel through a car. My sweaty hands were losing touch with the metal rack, which were the only things in contact with the quad. The quad started coming down as I felt my stomach coming back up. We landed and I could hear the quad speeding off in the distance. I opened my eyes and could see the tree tops in the sky. My head was throbbing with pain. I felt as if I had just fallen off a cliff, and I hoped that no more quads were coming down the trail.
