PIEDMONT, Ala. (AP) — A cyclist is recovering from a head injury after a dog ran onto a race course and caused a crash.

Foothills Classic Road Race organizer Mike Poe tells the Anniston Star (http://bit.ly/XQTknF) 22-year-old David Carpenter was riding downhill when a dog ran out in front of the cyclist Sunday in Piedmont. Poe says Carpenter was conscious after the accident but seemed to have suffered short-term memory loss.

Jack Howland, Carpenter's team manager, says the cyclist was treated and released from UAB Hospital. Howland says Carpenter suffered a concussion and had to get stitches in one of his ears.

Piedmont is about 25 miles northeast of Anniston.
