Short epic

A BARNSTAPLE mountain biker who last week set off on an epic charity cycle ride around Europe has been dealt a massive blow.

Just hours after reaching French shores, his adventure took a major setback after he was knocked off his bike following a collision with a car.

"The car just ploughed into the back of me; the driver left a bumper behind but didn't stop," Chris told the Gazette.
