Jason Anderson and Altitude

Recommended Posts

What is it with him? He got sick in Colorado and didn't finish the race. He finished salt lake and actually didn't well with a podium. I was surprised to hear that he didn't make the post race press conference due to altitude sickness.

 

You would think that if you know you are prone to it, he would have maybe spent his week off at altitude getting acclimated so this didn't happen.

You cannot acclimate to it. I lived in Colorado for 12 years and that subject has come up several times.

Initially when I moved there I would get migraines but I learned that drinking over a gallon of water a day and bringing a small can of oxygen you can buy at a sporting goods store came in handy.

Yet homeboy was still able to steal your girl friend and break your sisters heart by drop kicking her afterwards... I understand your bitterness. I suppose it also hurts that he drop kicked suzuki for those bad ass white KTM's as well.

There is no rhyme or reason to altitude sickness.  I live at 6k and play at altitudes up to 13k and never had an issue.  Then last summer, twice, I had real problems with altitude.  Once riding in the mountains near Rico, CO and another time shortly before that on Devil Mtn. near Pagosa Springs.  I feel for him on this issue, it sucks.  (Even though he's a weirdo :smirk: ).

Ouch!  You are good at defending Anderson's honor.  Does he give you the common courtesy of a reach around?

Training at Elevation most certainly has benefits.

But so does training in High Heat & Humidity, like Florida.

Nah. That pic should be for Musquin. He's the one that has issues with sandy snatch.

Some people are more sensitive to altitude than others.  It took me 2 or 3 months when I moved to CO.  Took longer to get used to how dry my skin gets here.  I still have issues when I go snowboarding at higher altitudes but not as bad.  I have friends from up north that suffer every time they come visit & some that don't even notice it.

I am at 600ft elevation and I used to go backpacking for two weeks every year to the Rockies. You most certainly can acclimate.

I would get terrible headaches until I learned to take the first two days milling around Estes Park(7500') before hitting the back-country in full backpack.  No more headaches.

I am surprised Anderson didn't know this.

You just said EVERYONE can acclimate. You sure about that? And why didn't you just drive to the Rockies?

I'm surprised so much talk about it in Salt Lake. 4000 ft isn't much at all. I've taken my son racing there many times and don't notice it at all.

I grew up at around 950' and have lived at 6,700' for more than 18 years, routinely camp for extended periods between 8,000' and 11,000' and ride up to 14,000 feet. 

I love the higher elevations but I have friends that suffer from altitude sickness driving from Omaha to Denver, and relatives that struggle to breathe at night at anything above 5,000'. 

None of my other friends or relatives have ever had any trouble regardless of how high we go.

It gets way hot up here in NM and Co

It gets hot in lots of places. Like Montana,  Arizona,  New Mexico,  even Colorado. 

 

But have you ever been to Florida in the summer??

That's one whole nother level of heat.
