Joanne Denise posted on Facebook: “Mike and I were out on bike and just came upon an incident in Findon valley as it happened, three unfortunate men on motorbikes were injured, in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.

“Saw cars and a van with people jumping in and driving off.

“We administered first aid to two of them until ambulance arrived (they seem like they’ll be fine, thank goodness) and Mike directed traffic until services arrived.

“Many amazing people helped.

“Please let police know if you saw anything.

“I have spoke to one of their wives on his phone and the men were riding down from Surrey with the Surrey Vikings whom we saw on front.”
