    This actually happened back in 2014 but after 4 years, four men are being tried for deliberately placing obstacles in a trail with the intent to injure riders. One rider crashed into the 500kg (!) rock and ended up being paralyzed as a result.

    Fortunately, most of the trail trap cases we report on result in minor injuries at worst, but this just goes to show how serious the effects can be.

    As if the sport isn’t already dangerous enough. I hope justice is served and these guys serve lengthy sentences.
