So I have a little story that relates to the Leatt neck brace I'm strictly an MX racer and don't really ever head out to the dunes or knolls, but when you get 8-10 MX racers that are board with the tracks we all headed out for some knolls action. This past saturday to be more specific, great day for riding all around. After watching derik nelson jump a 100 foot sand double we decided to head west, hitting the trails wide open we were having a blast, well long story short I was about 10 foot behind derik skimming the whoops when I started to swap back and fourth, It was all down hill from there, I imagine I was going around 35mph when I decided to eject from the bike. With this awesome momentum scooting me along and the 450 slowing down I first caught that wicked little handlebar in the chest, sending me cartwheeling over top the bike, next thing was a sweet lip on an upcomign hill that must have caught my head (thats what I think becuse I don't remember after this point) when I came to my hand seemed to be telling me "what the F*** was that trick"? aftering doing teh truffle shuffle on the ground for 10 minutes I made it to my feet and was checking out my once new CRF450, only a bashed silencer so I was stoked. After the boyz picked most the sage brush out of my helmet and leatt neck brace I manned up and said go on without me I'm going to get a beer. with a fellow rider escorting me to the truck I made it back just fine. As a reminder this is the first year I've worn the Leatt neck brace! I took off my helmet and inspected the carnage to this fine thor carbonfiber hair protector. It is now retired But then I tryed to take off my Leatt, No deal, I had smashed my head to hard into the back portion of the brace it completing jammed into position and not moving at all, it took two riders when they returned from there loop both pulling to get this puppy off, It was not broken, alot dirty but not broken and probably saved me from an air evac out of there that day! So if your thinking you don't need one because you don't race think again! I raced all year and ended up wrecking during a saturday joy ride! One broken hand and chest contusions later I just missed out on rounds 1 & 2 WINTERCROSS!
