Eish! :eek7:

ATGATT rules!

At what speed did this accident happen?

If I recall correctly we were doing between 100 and 120 km per hour.   Michnus were thrown from the bike, hit the barrier and then the rolled down the tar. 

My opnion - Uvex did the job and we need to seriously look at neck braces.

The zip actual ripped - it looks a bit worse because they cut the pants open to see how much damage was done.  If M had the hip pad in I am sure there would have been no damage.  He has an abrasion on his hip of about 10 x 5cm.  The only other skin missing is on his elbow, but that was due to material friction.

Looks like he landed on his head, or went head first into the barrier. If that was the case he is lucky not to have neck injuries!
