A 63-year-old British cyclists was in a critical condition last night after suffering a serious accident on a bend along the  Puigpunyent to Esporles road.

Palma.—It was the second accident  involving  a cyclist in Puigpunyent in  the space of just 24 hours and happened at 1.30pm as a pack of cyclists was heading down and round a 180 degree bend in the road.
According to the emergency services, it would appear that the 63-year-old, who was towards  the head of the pack, was apparently travelling too fast and ran out of space on the bend.
He apparently hurtled into the crash barrier and was  literally thrown over the edge, plummeting some 18 to 25 metres into the trees below.
