Not So Much a Bike Ride Through the Park


Pedro-Horrillo-Mun_1404563cDuring the Giro d’Italia bike race’s 8th stage Belarussian Kanantsin Siutsou took home the victory but the story afterwards was dominated by Spain’s Pedro Horillo Munoz who crashed into a guard rail and fell oer 250 feet down a ravine, and survived!

The ravine he fell down was so steep that rescuers required climbing harnesses and the like in order to safely get down to Munoz. Ultimately taken to a local hospital, Munoz is in serious condition with multiple head injuries and fractures and is extremely fortunate to be alive.
