If you choose to train, roll the two Training dice.
If either dice shows acrash, you crashed and have to drawa Crash Card.
Unless the other dice shows a wild, in which case nothing happens.

There are three types of cards: Cards with points, cards that are special, and cards with both.
Cards with both can only beused for EITHER the points or the special action, NOT both.
You can play special cardsat any point during your turn, and doing so does not count asan action.
You cannot gift, trade ordiscard Prepare Cards, unless you use them for their specialability, or for sending or crash recovery.
Sending is the only way to passthrough a Feature Tile and you can only Send It if you areon a Feature tile and the skills on your Rider Card meet or exceedthe skill requirements listed on the tile.

“I visualized sending it, rolled in to test speed, did some mental trainingand rolled in to test speed again.
” Then ask the rest of the riders:”Should I Send It?” and they all respond:”SEND IT!” Then you roll the Sending die.
The points from your cards will beadded to the points from the Sending Die To give you a Sending Score.
If it's equal to or higher than therequired points, you sent it, and move off the tile and drawPrepare Cards based on the feature color.
If your Sending Score islower, you crashed.
Do not move off the Feature Tile anddraw Crash cards based on the color.
You'll have to try sending itagain to get past that feature.
Either way, you must discard ALLthe Prepare Cards you used.

“I was almost all the way throughthis steep rock garden.
and then a squirrelran out right in front of me.
I hit the squirrel and I went over the bars, and I got a bloody nose, and I also lost my tools!” At this point the only turn actionavailable to you is Prepare until you have recovered from your crash.
There are two types of crashcards: Point cards and Special cards.
To discard the special Crash Cards, follow the instructions on the card.
To discard point Crash Cards, you must discard Prepare Cardswith at least as many points as the total crash points onyour Crash Cards.
