Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber is in a Tasmanian hospital after sustaining injuries in a road accident during the Mark Webber Pure Tasmania Challenge today.
The Australian was involved in a head-on collision with a 4WD while riding his mountain bike during today's stage near the historic Port Arthur township.
He was airlifted by helicopter to Royal Hobart hospital where he is in a stable condition. It is believed he has suffered a broken leg, with possible breaks in his arms as well.
"Mark's been involved in a minor accident, he's fine," said Webber Challenge media manager Nancy Cook. "He's being treated, he's really disappointed that he's not going to be able to continue but he's well and being looked after."
Webber was competing in his own charity event when the collision occurred, which covers 250 km over five days, involving mountain biking, kayaking and trekking, this year's event the fourth time it has been held.
Webber's injuries are likely to see him out of action for the rest of the year.
