A sport cyclist (m, 18) landed badly from a home-made ‘jump’, complaining of rib, face, shoulder and back pain. Arriving at the accident site, the YAS paramedics asked for CRO’s assistance and equipment, in order to immobilise the casualty and recover him to the road ambulance. These were taken to the site guided by a local quad-bike rider. Once ‘packaged’ in the vacuum mattress and placed on a stretcher, the casualty was loaded into a team Land Rover and driven down to the road ambulance, waiting in Stackhouse.
