Accident in Naas, Ireland - stolen bike?

Let's get this guy his bike back:

Victim:
"I was lying on the ground in pain with my wrecked bike when this bloke bleedin nicked my bike! I couldn't believe the bastard, loading my bicycle in the boot of his car while I lay dyin on the ground."
Nice guy:
"I came upon a cyclist who was on the ground having come off his bicycle. While waiting for an ambulance to arrive I put his bicycle in the back of my car to keep it safe for him.

Tallaght Fire Brigade arrived and I left him in their care. I subsequently sent a text and phoned the injured man only to discover that the mobile phone number he had given me is not in service.

I understand he was taken to Tallaght Hospital by ambulance but as I do not have his name Tallaght Hospital are unable to trace him for me. I am very anxious to trace this man as he is obviously a racing cycling enthusiast and I should think that his bicycle cost him a fair penny."
Fritz posted a comment on my blog about "this guy who posted about his wreck in Ireland", but despite judicious use of google and vBB search I cannot find the original post.

Can you help - did you see this post on BF.net in the last month? Link it here!

Thanks.

*ahem* Sorry about that, but that was a joke. The part about the bike thief was complete fiction on my part.
