Rock Cobbler event organizer says riders ‘a-OK’ after a bull attacks cyclist in incident that could have been much worse. At least four riders were charged by a loose bull on the course of this weekend’s Rock Cobbler gravel race near Bakersfield, California, with two different incidents caught on video.
According to the Cowboy State Daily, Tony Inderbitzin is the rider being attacked in the above video after riding too close to the massive bovine.
Race organizer Sam Ames of the Rock Cobbler gravel race, has stated there were multiple incidents where riders were charged by the bull but “everybody was A-OK.” Two riders finished and one dropped out. Above is the video of a bull charge.
I’m sore all over, mostly the neck from the second throw, I got whiplashed. The list of what doesn’t hurt is my left arm and head.Inderbitzin told Cowboy State Daily on Sunday
Most areas in the Western US allow open grazing and while owners are required to keep the animals away from major state and federal highways, they are not usually liable if people are injured by them. The burden of keeping loose cattle off of land falls on the property owner.
