I'm sure someone somewhere will soon come to realise that what a world class professional rider and the likes of me cycling to work will have different requirements and expectations when it comes to commuting.@Milkfloat is right he is now the voice of cycling even if he's not wishing to be. He will have to learn quickly how the media work's and what they are really after. TeamSky must have media team all over him they must have given him some training in how to handle his new found fame and how everyone now will want a bit of him. In the end what ever he or anyone talking to press say's it will always me moderated by the press in the every growing want to control what and how society think's and work. Often backed up by populist political thinking and actions.
That was my thoughts exactly, safety requirements for a helmet had not changed for years.Nor me, but I wish the reporting of it were more balanced.
I do take issue with this
Yes, helmet design has moved on - but the EN1078 has not been revised in over 20 years.
I do some work in standards in a safety critical industry, and to me that long without revision smells of something very odd going on.
