There’s a moose loose about this race

A bad day’s racing turned worse but more memorable for Fredrik Åkerman (Team Skåne) this weekend.
Having dropped off the back of the peloton in the Scandinavian Open, he had his head down and was chasing hard to regain contact when he made contact of an altogether different kind. He failed to see the full grown bull moose until point blank range, and ended up rolling down the road with his bike firmly wedged in it’s antlers.

Thankfully for both of them the moose shook the bike clear at the edge of the forest and then disappeared. BOth bike and rider escaped serious injury, but the moose will have to become a little less obvious if it’s to survive the annual moose hunting season which begins in a couple of months.

Thanks to for that one.
