The rider, a forty-one year old man from Flintshire, had gone over his handlebars on the steep track and sustained a serious injury to his elbow. The incident also triggered severe cramps in both legs leaving him unable to walk out. The man's riding partner, a friend of the Team, was able to pin- point their location, and ASART volunteers living locally were quickly on site.
The elbow injury was stabilised and then the casualty was carried a short distance to the end of the track where an ambulance was able to convey him to hospital-based care. His elbow turned out to be dislocated but not broken.
Everyone was safely off the hill by 3:30 p.m.
