CENTRAL POINT, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a mountain biker was found dead along an Ashland trail, and a medical examiner will try to determine if he died from the crash impact or some other reason.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said a hiker found the body and the bicycle Monday on a trail often used for mountain biking.

Sheriff's Sgt. Julie Denney told the Mail Tribune she doesn't know if the 56-year-old man was an experienced trail rider.

Police have notified his wife but did not release his name.
