Sick aero helmet! Where can I buy one?

Look at that Skid Lid on te rider in the background! I used to have one of those. NOT the most protective helmet.

Foreground is obvious – that’s the pre-production Air Attack helmet. Been in final development for quite a while tho.

Awesome pic, I ride that route pretty often seeing as I work 2 miles away!

Thanks for the share!

I crashed on gravel in the first decent on this very stage in 1983 and ended up with 176 stitches. I still have small pieces of gravel visible under the skin of my elbow and hip. Had to abandon when the med-van guy tackled me as i tried to remount my bike. That course was custom suited for my skill set. I still wonder what might have been all these years later.
