(Had an interesting passing incident today, as a matter of fact, on some singletrack south of town. I was about to pass a runner. He heard me coming and kindly stepped off the trail — almost directly onto a huge rattlesnake. Very large snake, as thick as a mason jar. Awesome. It waved its huge head around at us like a cartoon cobra for a few seconds, then we all went on with our business.)
New Zealand has some nice trails, so I’ve been told.
First time I’ve ever heard of something like this between trail riders. Didn’t watch the video:
Brizzell said the incident happened after he asked Dalton to let him past, in line with trail etiquette to let faster riders through.
However, Dalton did not give Brizzell space and eventually their argument boiled over into a physical confrontation.
Brizzell said he was strangled by his helmet strap and eventually bit the man’s finger.
