Noga Korem has announced that after sustaining a head injury she will be sitting out today's Enduro World Cup racing.

bigquotesGutted to let you know that I won't be racing tomorrow.

It's a pretty hard call to make but @taralazarski and @ 88gc reminded me that I only have one head so better take good care of it.

Good luck to everyone who's racing! I am super jealous.

Massive thanks for the support.

 Good call and I applaud racers, teams and media that keep publicizing these good decisions to take time off after head injuries. Very good turning point to have reached to have this be the accepted course of action rather than "toughing it out".

 I feel for her, made the right decisions yeah but... Why the hell in the picture is she riding in giggles with no lenses? She put goggles frames on and still got shit all over her face, who does this? I'm very confused.

 I believe it helps keep the helmet in place. When so wet/muddy, sometimes pointless to ride in goggles

 Dang, she’s had a rough few years with this and smoking that head-high metal pole in Spain awhile ago. Heal up!

 There seems to be a lot of riders getting injured atm. Hopefully things settle down as we get into the season. Definitely sit it out with a head injury.
