Re: [CR]Rider in critical condition at l'Eroica ride

(Example: Books:Ron Kitching)

Ken Freeman was riding directly in front of the guy. The rider never made the right hand turn and traveled straight and hit the wall doing 40KPH.

When I passed by, a helicopter was preparing to transport to Siena..

Ken said that he did not wear a helmet and that his damages were massive.

Not a good end to a fun race.

One of the cyclists that was participating in the Eroica ride in Italy fell and was rushed to hospital and admitted in critical conditions. The cyclist, a 50 year-old Roman, lost control and hit his head on a cement step leading to a field. First aid was administered by fellow riders and he was then rushed unconscious to the hospital where he now under care. No news of his condition.

Any news from the CR members participating?
