Crash in Chino Hills park...

I know some of you live in this area and might ride Chino hills park. I just found out that this morning my brother crashed pretty badly in chino hills park. I don't know exact location or anything, I do know he enters through entrance in Chino Hills. I could not get anythign really specific on the crash, I believed he went over his handlebars and used his face to slow himself down, broke bone below his left eye and broke his shoulder bone. He was only stranded their about 15 min before someone found him, if it was anyone in this forum I would just like to say thank you. They ended up airlifting him out of the park to the hospital. If everyone could say a prayer for him I would appreciate it.

Spoke with my mom this morning, looks like he will be alright! Broken scapula, and bone below his eye is broken (most likely will not need surgery to repair) and should be moved out of ICU this afternoon. I think we all know we will crash now and then, but even if I ride alone I know that other cyclist out their are always willing to help out in time of need be it a flat tire or a bad crash that is one of the wonderful thing about cyclist I feel.

Yeh its class, and the respect form each other, other cyclists acknowledge you, even if they dont know you.
