A middle-aged man was airlifted to Palmerston North Hospital after suffering serious injuries when his road bike slid out on a corner on State Highway 1 between Taihape and Waiouru.

Local ambulance and fire services attended the scene about 10am Saturday, and there was a short delay for traffic to allow the helicopter to land on the road and retrieve the patient at around midday.
