I can't believe that Giro held up. They used to crumple if you dropped it off your bike:lol:.

I learned to wear a full face the other night even if you think you are doing the easiest of trail riding (dj'ing is another story). Fell off my bike over the handle bars on a small XC trail and smashed my face into a log. Almost broke my nose, cuts in my mouth, and still have a fat lip and it happened on Tuesday night. Kinda stupid but easy places are where a lot of accidents occur because naturally you think that you don't have to try as hard as on something more challenging.

how the hell did a half helmet like that take the weight of a truck

how exactly did he manage to position his head right under the wheels of the truck? And how did the truck touch only his helmet? I think I'll have to try this out

It said that he flipped over for slamming on the brakes. (Hydro brakes? I wonder at times.) So there's a chance that he either flipped close the curb or flipped so far that he was on the other side of the truck.

But really, a truck that didn't notice a bike flailing around? Did he flip and then put his head between the front and rear wheels?
