Default WHOOPS! Mountain biker rescued south of Bozeman on Sunday (MT)

It sounds like the trail is too rough for mountain bikes. The land manager is at fault for permitting them.

Mountain biker rescued south of Bozeman on Sunday

BOZEMAN -- A woman was rescued on Sunday after a mountain biking incident in the South Cottonwood Canyon, south of Bozeman.

According to Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, the woman, in her 40s, was carrying her bike through a rough area when her foot was tangled on something in the trail, and she fell.

The accident occurred about four miles from the trailhead. Her riding partner rode 2 miles to get cell service and dial 911.

With the assistance of Gateway Fire Dept and AMR ambulance, 10 rescuers hiked in and used a specialized one-wheeled stretcher to carry the woman out. She was then transported by ambulance to Bozeman Deaconess.

It took rescuers almost 4 hours to get her out.
