Tech Randoms Part 1: Crankworx Rotorua 2019
@bizutch: You don't have to tell me that helmet (paint) companies don't have a lot of cash to throw at riders...!! So much time goes into helmet paint; it's not like chucking them a few sets of pads/jerseys/whatever from the warehouse while you sell thousands of others at full price. For clarity - I'm a helmet painter so my comments above are from the perspective of a painter who would like to see more riders running custom paint, but find that a lot of riders can't due to sponsorship contracts. Hope that clears things up as I'm agreeing with you but you seem to think I'm not.

@Patrick9-32: "If you are a helmet manufacturer you would surely want your pro riders to run either stock helmets or be able to offer the same thing the riders wear to your customers (signature pro colour/graphics). " Yep, hence it all but putting a stop to custom lids.

@bizutch: Nope, I hadn't noticed what lid Luca was running (but that's what I'm saying; brands want to promote product over letting riders paint helmets). Some riders I've spoken to aren't able to run a custom lid cos their sponsor wants them to run the stock design - in reply to TMV2 who prefers to see riders with custom paint.

Nathan Rennie Charged with Drunk Driving
Not sure if anyone else has commented this but: Pinkbike didn't choose to ignore Missy Giove's run in with the law a few years back, and by the same logic that some of your are using here, that isn't 'mountain bike news' either'. The guy is a really well known mountain biker. This is related to MTB.

@TMV2: Red Bull are pretty good at letting helmet artists and riders do something creative with their base design (as are MucOff). It's the Monster designs that seem to mostly be based around their logo on a black background, but even then I've seen some cool designs. What's more restrictive is helmet manufacturers wanting their sponsored riders to run stock designs - this is what seems to put a stop to a lot of riders running a custom helmet. That and cost; the budget available often doesn't stretch to things like custom paint.

Video: Sydney, Australia Has Mountain Biking, But No Mountains
Really nicely filmed & put together. Our trails are currently under a good few inches of snow (and I've got a bunch of helmets to paint), but you made me want to go ride my bike. In Australia.

Interview: Aaron Gwin on His Break With YT & Becoming a Team Owner
@ChazzMichaelMichaels: I like the idea of riders being allowed their own custom helmet design, along the lines of Formula 1. The rider's own identity and colours on their helmet design. But changing up kit in different races is just going to make it a nightmare to identify anyone.
