Here at Singletrack we were gutted to hear the bad news that Michael Bonney, Chief ‘Tree Planter’ and lynchpin at Orange Mountain Bikes, was in hospital after a crash on his road bike on Sunday.
We’re sure everyone out there in STW internet land will join with us in sending best wishes for his recovery. Heal quick mate…
Here’s the message from Orange:
“To all our Orange fans, friends and family:
On Sunday, Michael Bonney, the lynchpin in all that is Orange, had a terrible accident whilst road cycling during the Eden Valley Epic. No vehicles were involved.
He was airlifted to Newcastle hospital where he remains in a very critical condition.
As most of you will be aware, Michael is an extremely popular person with huge amount of friends, and its impossible to pass on this news individually. Linzi has already been inundated with best wishes and its impossible for her to reply individually, so as he is a big advocate to social media, and after speaking with Linzi, we will keep you up-to-date through our Facebook page.”
