The 14 year old dirt biker who hit a barbed wire fence at North Scottsdale yesterday morning remains on the critical list in hospital.

He's being treated for a head injury, plus fractures to the face and wrist, which saw him airlifted from the Old Waterhouse Road area to the Royal Hobart Hospital.
