Hi people,
Rider went down this morning however Ambo's were there when we passed. Hope the damage was minimal. I hope it wasn't a BNAer?

What time and a rough location?
Didn't see anything myself but we went on to Glorious so came back down later than most. Not surprised though as the road surface is terrible and the patchwork repair jobs aren't helping...I found that I had to ride out to the right near the white line in parts on the descent.

Hope the rider is ok!

First time up Nebo so forgive me if I get the locale wrong. I think it was the second split in the road on the way down. Time was 9am maybe?

When I came down around 10:30 there was a hazard sign just before that and a flashing light on the barrier...sincerely hope that that damage wasn't a result of this incident, but that is a pinch point where you need to be mindful of your speed.

That was the spot then. No hazard sign or lights elsewhere.

Came past it too when the ambo was there. There were a heap of the Red Dog Tri crew around the unlucky person - they waved me through so didn't chat, but seems likely it was one of their squad. Nasty place to come off in any event, really hope they're OK!

Saw a bunch of Reddogs at Bellissimo Coffee around 11am. Seemed happy enough.
I didn't ride this morning, as my mates did Glorious back and front, something I would only attempt when in peak form.
