There was a recent post on mtbr.com, where someone suspected sabotage of a trail (with intent to hurt rider).

Saw this on an offroad board

Placitas man gets 25 days in prison for booby-trapping trail

August 4, 2004

Placitas, New Mexico - A Placitas man has been sentenced to 25 days in prison for stringing thin steel cable across a Cibola National Forest trail near Placitas.

Michael L. Delongchamp also was fined $4,100 and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service in Tuesday's sentencing. He also will be under supervised release for two years.

Delongchamp pleaded guilty in May to stringing the cable, which injured a mountain biker. He says his action was a huge mistake.

US District Judge Christina Armijo says she took into account the dozens of letters written on Delongchamp's behalf, his lack of a prior criminal background and his history of community service in her sentencing.

Chris Casey of Placitas was injured after he slammed into one of the cables.

25 days in prison? He's lucky I didn't come down the trail as he was setting up the trap. He would have got a shallow grave and a bag of lime :mad:
