One rider crashed into the 500kg (!) rock and ended up being paralyzed as a result. https://elpais.com/elpais/2018/06/20/inenglish/1529489789_531176.html 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.
