This defiant professional cyclist did not wear his helmet on a training ride. Read this story from the Cycling Examiner and please stop the next person you see riding without a helmet!
"German pro cyclist Matthias Kessler definitely had bad luck when a cat crossed his path last week while training in Majorca. Add Kessler's decision not to wear a helmet and the result was tragic and could have been fatal.
Kessler, 30, a former rider for the Kazakhstan-based team Astana, served to miss a cat and crashed head-first in a wall and suffered a fractured skull.
Physicians induced a coma to facilitate Kessler's recovery, and the cyclist also had surgery to have blood clots removed. Kessler was initially listed in critical condition, but is now recovering and his status has been upgraded to serious."
