Where are you hearing any of this? None of my riding buddies have heard any of this and I haven't seen anything on any of the forums.

From a friend who was there this morning with a group of riders who heard from another couple of riders that happen across the biker.


So heard from a friend who heard from a couple of unknown mt bikers.
Not a solid source of facts, but that is my news for today.

It's possible the rider could have been lost for quite some time.

But for you, I'll make an exception. Y'all can ONLY ride solo.

Immortal sad he crashed and his helmet was embedded with rocks, what does that have to being a solo rider? That, and getting lost on Pontiac lake mtb trailtrails is almost 97.3% impossible.

not to mention on the weekend, i doubt more than 5 minutes would pass before another irder came along. However you cant fix a busted skull with a trail kit.

I call BS on this story, just dont see how a rider with a helmet could die from a head injury there
