The man involved in a fatal mountain biking incident last Wednesday at Blue Mountain Resort near Collingwood has been identified.

Grey County paramedics were dispatched to the top of the Orchard ski lift area on Scenic Caves Road last Wednesday afternoon for a cyclist who had suffered serious injuries as a result of a crash on a mountain biking trail.

Police said it appears 27-year-old Zachary Jacobi of Brant County left the trail and hit a tree. He was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Results of a post mortem have not been released, but the OPP say the death is not considered to be suspicious.
