NORA Cup Nominees

Ride just released the top five nominees for the NORA cup categories, and I have to say that I’m stoked on all of the dudes in the running for #1 Dirt Jumper. Brian Foster, Chris Doyle, Mark Mulville, Mike Clark, and TJ Ellis make up the top five this year. I really doubt it would be too hard for you to figure out who I’d like to see win! Also exciting is that the Blue Falcon is up for video part of the year for BF-it and that BF-it is very rightfully nominated for video of the year!



Certified vs Non-Certified Helmet Impact Test

The last time the ARF posted something about helmets it caused me to go off on a bit of a pro-helmet/pro-certified helmet rant. I’ll refrain from doing that this time because I think this video definitively backs up the case for wearing a proper helmet.

“ARF Presents: Certified vs Non-Certified Bicycle Helmet Impact Test.. Come along with pro riders Mike Clark, Brandon Dosch and Chad Kerley. This video shows without a doubt the tremendous difference in protection between certified and non certified helmets. We tried to simplify the physics as much as possible but the results are undeniable. Make sure if you are riding BMX you are wearing the proper protection. It could mean the difference between riding again or not.”
