I. TSG Saved My Life – Roland’s story

I was trying barspins at my local dirt jumps. I landed the first one but on the second attempt i didn’t catch the bars and crashed heavily hitting my head on the ground.

I was thinking I had suffered brain shake

I got up and felt ok but two minutes later I couldn’t remember what had happened (I thought I maybe had suffered brain shake).

My friends called my Mother and she picked me up and we drove to the hospital. After examination they told me that I had indeed suffered brain shake but due to wearing a helmet it was only minor and they allowed me to go home.

Roland’s head was saved by the TSG Evolution helmet. Here is a photos after his crash. Still looks pretty good! But remember to always replace your helmet after a crash on the head.
