TJ Lavin made a pretty big announcement via Twitter today - he is now requiring anyone riding his famous backyard dirt jumps to wear a full face helmet. Here's the official word -
Fresh off a serious head injury himself, TJ is clearly looking out for the health of his friends and trying to set an example for riders around the world.
With riders like Cam White, Anthony Napolitan, and Cory Nastazio (among others) frequenting TJ's yard, will we start to regularly see full face helmets at dirt jumping contests? Only time will tell.
