WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. - Sunday's end to the Multiple Sclerosis 150-bike ride was an emotional one.

Riders crossed the finish line of the two-day race in White Bear Lake on Sunday, butconcern still remained forthree bikers who were hurt in a crash on the trail north of Hinckley.

Race officials say a rider fell, causing two other riders to crash into the back of him.

Organizers say though unfortunate, it's not uncommon for a race of this size.

"Our chapter president has been in touch with all of those riders. We do run a very safe ride. It's fully supported. We involve more than 1,000 volunteers, and we have rest stops, first-aid stops, mechanic stops all the way around the route," said Anna Kucera, of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Officials are not releasing the condition of the injured riders due to privacy concerns.

An estimated $3 million was raised to help fight the disease.
