Loudoun County, VA- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) is investigating an assault on the Washington and Old Dominion Trail (W&OD) where a cyclist was seriously injured by another passing cyclist. 

The victim, an adult male, was riding his bike west on the W&OD Trail near Ashburn Village Boulevard around 2:15 p.m. Sunday and was attempting to pass two bicyclists. He was reportedly riding on the center line when a cyclist coming from the opposite direction reached his arm out intentionally and hit the victim’s bike helmet. The victim fell to the ground and was seriously injured. He was taken to the Lansdowne Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital and later transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he is listed in stable condition. 

The suspect rode off in the opposite direction heading east towards Ashburn Village Boulevard. The suspect was wearing a white/light green shirt, helmet and sunglasses. His bike was described as being similar to a time trial bike or a triathlon bike. The bars on the bike were “aero bars” and his helmet was an “aero” helmet covered with a sun shade which covered half his face. The suspect was wearing a white/light green Castelli jersey and was approximately 6’ tall. 

Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective M. Grimsley of the LCSO at 703-777-1021.
