A judge is currently considering a lawsuit filed against the Tour de ‘Toona, a bicycle race, by one of the participants who was injured in the 2005 race. During the race, which goes around the city of Altoona, the plaintiff was coming up to a turn when her bicycle slipped out from underneath her and she slid into a ditch by the side of the road. On impact, she shattered several of her vertebrae and is now paralyzed from the waist down. She is contending that the Altoona race officials knew of the danger and should have erected hay barriers on the side of the road. The officials are contending that bicycle racing is an inherently dangerous activity and that the participant had signed two liability waivers before competing.
