OnTo1Wheel was in fact riding solo in the Renz area of the hills when he came across the discarded helmet. “I was pretty winded from lots of singletrack before I even got there,” he wrote on his YouTube channel. “I gotta get in shape for these kinds of days…”
Deciding to investigate, OnTo1Wheel dismounted his bike and dropped the kickstand. It was then that he heard somebody calling from a nearby slope. Under a tree a short distance away was the dark outline of what appeared to be a crash scene.
Clambering up the hill, OnTo1Wheel discovered an upturned quad bike. And underneath it was a man, apparently crushed from the waist down. “I thought for sure the guy was chopped in half when I got up there!” wrote the dirt biker. “Freaky moment, for sure.”
