Been Mandated in MXGP for a while, and they all get checked on the way into the holding area.

But...but...but...how do the MXGP guys go so fast while being so restricted by a chest protector?

I mean all the US guys claim they are so restricting right?

It's high time this is the rule in the US too in my opinion.

In world championship too if I'm not mistaken. So I'm very interested in someone who races FIM SX, is it there also required?!

Edit: PhilG beat me to it! And I even think chest protection alone is not enough, is kidney belt and/or back protection in your body armor not also mandatory?

a) Helmets
Helmets must be marked with one of the official international standard
marks mentioned in the FIM Regulations. Long hair must be contained
within the helmet.

b) Eye protection
Goggles must be worn at the start of each practice, qualification, sighting
lap or race.

c) Equipment and protective clothing
This equipment includes but is not limited to: boots, gloves, jerseys, pants
and an unmodified, commercially available full upper body protection
(front and back). Gloves must be worn at the start of each practice,
qualification, sighting lap or race.


Full MXGP 2018 Rules, and indeed no kidney belt is mandatory.
