53-year-old Roberto Singson touched his front tire against a rider in front of him. Singson lost control and fell. He struck his head on the ground. Two more bikers -60-year-old James Poitras and 55-year-old John Burchfield - crashed into him and fell.

Deputies say Singson was flown to a hospital. Poitras suffered a broken right clavicle and Burchfield was treated and released. All three men were wearing helmets.
