Sheet ice over slate bedrock caused a 37 year old mountain biker to crash on the south red route at Whinlatter Forest. A resulting nasty ankle fracture dislocation was treated at the scene before the casualty was stretchered to the team Land Rover and driven to an awaiting ambulance. Coincidentally it was exactly this type of ankle injury that was covered in our medical refresher training a couple of days ago.
