Ice throwers cause serious Zoobomb crash

Zoobomb

[Rev Phil on a recent Zoobomb]

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

Weak. Were these people just being stupid, or was there malicious intent? Sad to hear either way…

Skidmark,

Thanks for that info. I talked to two people today and they made it seem like he crashed due to the ice. I’ll try and get a clarification ASAP.

Regardless, these ice-throwers need to be dealt with. Last time I Zoobomb edI remember getting hit with ice and several corners seemed mysteriously wet and slippery.

Yes it is lame that some little smartasses are getting away with fucking with us. He was trying to avoid running someone over. A few weeks ago I got a water ballon in the face. It was refreshing, yet very disrespectful.

Phil was very coherent, despite a head injury, and likely has a clear memory of the whole thing, so we should all patiently wait until he is a little more recovered and ask him what happened.

I spoke to the rev. tonight. He was hurt pretty badly but is in good spirits and it sounds like he will recover. I didn’t ask about the details of the crash but wanted to relate that he is going to be ok.

Good. Maybe this will send the message that Zoobombing is dangerous and illegal. Even though biker-butt kissing Porland won’t condemn it. You ***insult deleted*** just HAVE to speed your bikes naked down the street drunk at midnight… don’t you.
