A 16 year old mountain biker was descending the Roman Road towards Hope when she took a tumble and sustained upper body injuries.  The rescue teams used 4 x 4 vehicles to access the incident site and were able to assist E.M.A.S. paramedics in treating the casualty.   The young lady was then carried by stretcher for some considerable distance back to Town Head Bridge where an ambulance was waiting.
