Interesting Info on Snell Compliant Helmets

July 12, 2010 Leave a comment

The NY Times article is about the dangers of small M2005 rated motorcycle helmets. It was interesting that some think Snell’s test results should be updated. The writer ends up being fired by his magazine.

Southern California Track Organizer

I found a new track organizer. Well new to me. Hmm, they say they were doing track events since 1999. First time I heard of ’em. Check out their schedule. Their prices look good, $120 for Streets of Willow with free  lap timing (usually additional $20). If you have run with them in the past, comment below about your experience. Click the link below to visit their website.
