Description

Out for a ride in the Surrey Hills and after climbing to the top hit record on the video to hit the first small set of doubles'. Walked back up the track towards the start when a few other guys came down. Unfortunately the last one down nose dived into the gap and went over the bars and landed literally face first. His helmet took the main impact (see images at the end of the video) but was knocked out cold. Ambulance was called immediately but even though they were given a grid reference couldn't find us for half an hour. Rider was unconscious for a few minutes and then after slowly coming around was very confused. The total time from accident to taken away in the ambulance was over an hour, so this is cut down. Rider was released from hospital later that evening with no broken bones or other serious injuries.
