Lakeview, CT (June 6, 2019) – On June 2, numerous racers were in the area for the Lime Rock Cycling Grand Prix in Lakeland. Colin Reuter, who is famously known as a lead developer for BikeReg.com and the president of the New England Bicycle Association, was riding on his bicycle when he crashed and fell on top of another rider's bike.
During the fall, a piece of the cycling equipment for the second rider's bike went through his leg, just below the knee area. Reuter remained calm and called for help. The second rider involved in the collision sustained a dislocated shoulder.
Both Reuter and the second rider were transported to an area hospital for medical treatment immediately following the incident. Both riders are expected to make full recoveries from their injuries.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Colin Reuter and the second rider at this time.
