Sofia Jaramillo may have been mountain biking ahead of the pack, but as she soon found out, that was nothing compared to being behind the herd. Twelve years old at the time, she was attending her first mountain bike camp in her hometown, Ketchum, Idaho, riding on a bumpy forest road when her tire slid into a rut.

Things didn’t just get hairy, they got downright woolly.

“Suddenly, I looked up and hundreds of sheep were blocking the road,” she recalled. “I panicked, turned my wheel, hit my front brakes and flew over my handlebars. When I opened my eyes, I was surrounded by sheep. I ended up landing on my hip so hard I had to get stitches.”
