The ScienceOf Thrill

There is that moment when it all pays off.

When you take yourself completely by surprise. It’s usually an all or nothing moment. In a heartbeat you weigh up… throw caution to the wind… and commit.

In a heartbeat. When it doesn’t work, it’s sore. To body, bike and ego. But when it does, it’s glorious. It’s why you do this. Total euphoria. At this moment you are truly invincible and nothing else matters. Every cell in your body screams with delight, adrenalin sparkles through your body and you are momentarily free from every earthly trapping known to man.

I purchased a Leatt 5.5 helmet a year ago after researching the best helmets you can buy. I wanted it for the safety and the airflow it provided. I race off-road in the Pro class, and last weekend I was racing on a high spend section. I was probably doing 80mph on a single track,…

Brooks Weyandt knew his efforts were in vain, even as he braced himself for impact. Kicking the gas pedal, the 13-year-old boy tried to maneuver the dirt bike so that he could propel himself forward, but it was too late. He was suspended in the air as his front tire struck the ground and his…
