A mountain biker had to be air-lifted after crashing during a race Saturday.

The rider was taking part in the Indian Creek race, the third in a series of races as part of the Rocky Mountain Endurance Series.

According to Douglas County Search and Rescue, a 41-year-old was on a technical portion of the race course outside Sedalia when he bumped against a log and was knocked off his bike, landing face-first. Due to his remote location, it took almost three hours for responders to get the victim air-lifted.

The rescue involved efforts from Douglas County Search and Rescue, West Metro Fire, and AirLife. Douglas County rescue workers were already staged at the race as volunteers.

The rider's condition is still unknown but his injuries were not life-threatening.
