I. TSG Saved My Life

It was the 4th run of Bela Joyride 2018.  The track has two distinct sections. The upper part is quick and challenging with a lot of long strait sections while the bottom part is just one hairpin after another (16 hairpins in all!!!).

Weirdly I heard songs and voices in my head while crashing

I just switched wheels and was about to do a very fast run. Everything went well until me and my buddy were approaching the party corner. I was about to do a toeside stand up at like maybe 60 kph. My wheels didn’t break out and I fell straight on my right side, dislocated my shoulder and smashed my head heavily on the ground.

Weirdly I heard songs and voices in my head while crashing. Totally weird!!!  🙂

The helmet cracked and wasn’t rideable anymore, even the EPS inside cracked open.

Joel’s Pass full-face after the crash. Luckily his head was protected by our helmet.

I don’t want to imagine what would have happened, if I weren’t riding this helmet. So thank you again TSG. Great work! And thank you for letting me share my story.
