Soldiers from the cavalry division, nurses and foundation rescue staff attended to a 65 year old German man after he fell unconscious during a road cycling race up Doi Tung in Chiang Rai.

 

They managed to resuscitate him and he was able to tell them that his name was Mr Klaus J.P. and had been living in the Mae Jan area for 7 years. 

 

He was taken to the local hospital with a low pulse then later on Sunday morning was transferred to hospital in Chiang Rai.

Hi, I'm Klaus, the rider you have seen lay down on the picture above and got help. First and foremost i thank everyone very much who helped to save successful my live. Thank you so much. Sadly i do

They learned his name only because he was able to tell them. Note to runners and cyclists: keep a copy of your passport with you when you're out on the road. 

What’s wrong with cycling at 65? I am 75, live in Chiang Rai and have done over 2500 km on my MTB already, since January 1. No intention to stop anytime soon. So Klaus does have a future! Listen

A pink ID card for foreigners is useful. Provides your details in Thai (no English used on the card) as well as your blood group.

Yes, they certainly can.  Even more expensive in Thailand.  Can easily run 100K to 150K or more.  I just don't let the S.O. know what they cost.

It also helps if you have some form of ID written in Thai with local contact info.

Gosh, I hope that doesn't mean I shouldn't ride my usual one day 240km ride with 3000m of climbing over two major mountain passes this coming July.  Granted, I'm not quite 65 but I've spent my whole life running and cycling both here and abroad.  Not stopping anytime soon.  

You are obviously an accomplished and fit athlete, and I take my hat off to you. I was not implying people stop, just think twice, and maybe have regular check ups. All the best on your upcoming sojourn, and please stay safe on the roads. 

Bye the way, I appreciate it is not my business, but may I ask please which mountain range you are crossing?

Thats why these fitness trackers are so useful, agreed they are not medical instruments but they will give a good indication if something is wrong like heart rate/pressure etc 

Hydration is another importatnt issue in this heat.

 

Hope the guy is ok, he was lucky to get such a rapid response/help.
