So apparently, the sticker was wrong and he's the new US Compliance expert and can say too bad regardless. Did the other guy happen to have a spare helmet with him too? I've never once thought to bring TWO helmets to a race...goggles, yes, helmet, no! And if you didn't have a spare helmet, would you have no been able to race? The reason I'm so interested in this, is that the Giro Selector is the best aero helmet for me, and I can guarantee you, if this happened to me at a race I would go ballistic.
I do bring a spare helmet. Not specifically for this, but I like being prepared. That said, I'd raise a stink if someone rejected my Advantage2, but at the local races I do I've never had anyone even check.
The point is, ladies and gentleman, that speed, for lack of a better word, is good. Speed is right, Speed works. Speed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.
