Given that his friend and coach has also been hit today, Brad's first interview when he's released from hospital should be interesting.

Especially as he often uses... Anglo Saxon.

wearing a bit of foam on the head would have made no difference to these results of these accidents


Of course not Doctor Queso.


Swings and roundabouts, it may have saved Shane Suttons life.
It would be handy to know in advance what sort if accident one would have to decide whether to bother with the foam or not.

I've just ridden a bicycle without a helmet.

I did not die.

Because you did not crash and land on your head. I've never had to do an emergency stop in the rain - doesn't mean I'm going to remove the ABS from my car.

Sorry, will get back in my box now! ;)

I got hit by a white van in May, my helmet was smashed to pieces and luckily all I got was concussion (amongst other cuts / bruises all over my body), I'd dread to think how badly my eggs would have been scrambled if I wasn't wearing a helmet.
