    Right now we have nothing to update. He or she was transported by helicopter to UVA Med Center and that’s the last information we had. Tommy

    The cyclist is awake and stable at UVA. He will undergo surgery to stabilize the fractures. I was riding with him and GREATLY appreciate the huge effort by Montebello fire; Wintergreen EMS and Pegasus.
