Today CVSRT members have been providing safety cover for an organised downhill mountain bike event at the Havok Bike Park, which is nestled in dense steep woodland near Cornholme.
Mid-way through the morning CVSRT members were called away to assist with an incident near Brontë Falls, Haworth (Incident #1034) before returning to continue the safety cover at the event. Thankfully the events passed by with only two incidents that required our assistance.
A rider fell off and sustained an ankle injury. Team members provided pain relief and the casualty was stretchered to the car park where his friend transported him to hospital for further medical assistance.
A rider was heard to crash by two team members. He had sustained a cut but was up and walking around so appeared to be ok, however ten minutes after the crash he was exhibiting signs of mild concussion. He was cared for at the scene by a team doctor.
CVSRT would like to thank the organisers for holding a prize raffle to help raise funds for the team.
