Cat 4 Field Crash

At Redmond Derby Days crit in the Cat 4 field, a racer started on a Huffy MTB. He was dropped and lapped. Part of the field formed a “v’” around him. When they came back together, there was a large crash.

Chris Boyles was seriously injured in the crash with 3 broken ribs and a punctured lung.

We shot this photo of a bike that was involved in the crash. The wheels were destroyed and the frame was cracked.

As we commented on Flickr

we’ve got a racer in hospital and I expect people worrying and talking about this incident behind the scenes. We’re a small community. Our take is the newsworthiness of the story; we saw it happen, and relayed what we heard at the time.

We wish Chris a speedy recovery and hope an incident like this never happens again.
