Zack Zimkover was involved in a crash during the Cat 1/2/3 Points Race at Encino Velodrome last Saturday. He is facing medical expenses not covered by the $5000 deductible in the USAC insurance.

This crash was terrible. I witnessed it from the warm-up track. It took out three riders from the race and Zimkover caught the worst of it. You can see him going down in this picture as the rider behind him (I think it’s John Allen?) is about to run over his head. Collin Berry also hits him in the chest. All three riders topple over and slide down to the apron. Zimkover looks the worst as he appears to go into some kind of convulsion. That’s the point where I had to leave the warm-up track. Ambulances where called. Two riders went off on stretchers and one limped away in a shoulder sling. Please be safe out there.
