 I noticed that in none of these pictures is a rider wearing a neck brace (like a leatt). Do riders simply not opt to wear them in qualifying or do these three riders simply never wear one. It seems kind of surprising because I thought almost all 4x riders wear one.

 riding in a leatt for 4x is alot different than for dh.not as steep as dh so you need your head up more and it limits head movement and it is sometimes uncomfortable
