Last night’s weekly Zoobomb run turned ugly when someone hurled ice at approaching riders.
The ice cause several major crashes, including a “nasty” compound leg fracture to local cycling personality and film promoter Reverend Phil. Here’s the word I got from a Zoobomber who was on the ride:
“Last night on zoobomb around one of the tight turns, someone waiting on the side of the road at one of the tight turns threw a bunch of ice at/on passing zoobombers, resulting in a pileup. it’s happened before, but this time some people bit it pretty hard and revphil experienced a nasty compound leg fracture, bone sticking out and everything. we’re taking it pretty seriously and would perhaps even like to pursue legal action, but for now we’re just putting the word out that that’s a really f*$#@#* up thing to do and that it’s not OK to break people’s bones for fun.”
It will be interesting to see how this situation develops. More details to come.
Best wishes to Rev Phil for a speedy recovery
