IDENTITY SOUGHT: This mountainbiker is alleged to have assaulted another
mountainbiker on a Port Hills track in Christchurch yesterday.
A Christchurch mountainbiker says a fellow cyclist tried to strangle
him with his helmet after the pair got into an argument on a Port Hills
Mountainbiker Jordan, who did not want his surname used, caught the alleged incident on film with a helmet video camera.
He said it stemmed from him asking the other cyclist, a middle-aged
man in yellow Rock Shox Racing top, to give him room to pass on the
Flying Nun track yesterday.
"He kept saying yes but wouldn't give me a space. He was holding me
up pretty badly. Trail etiquette says you pull over to let faster riders
He claimed he was polite at first, but "got less polite" as the other cyclist refused to stop.
However, he "certainly wasn't asking to be attacked".
