This is a good new idea at the GPs.

So each rider has to have another "helper" stationed here with their particular goggle brand? Or are the goggle reps for each brand stationed here?

I thought it said "Google" lane. I thought you rode in there and ordered some goggles online.

I think it’s a great idea. It blows my mind that guys will race without goggles. It really should be mandatory to pit for goggles when you toss them.

Fuck all that noise. I've got roll offs down to a science, and i still have to ditch goggles plenty

I guess I should have explained my thinking. If the riders knew they would have to pit for goggles if they toss them then they wouldn’t worry about losing 20 seconds or whatever stopping for fresh goggles because they know everyone else would be doing it. That way they don’t have to literally risk going blind for fear of getting passed. How exactly is that a bad thing?

Meanwhile the us nationals have a couple ragged ez up for the mechanic "infrastructure". The MXGP's are killing it.

Yeah i think it's completely insane that it is allowed. Look at Vlaanderen at MXdN, is it really worth to risk your eyes like that? And aren't goggles mandatory at the gate? There is zero logic that you have to have goggles when you start but you can toss them away within a lap and finish the race.

Once you toss your goggles you should pit for new goggles within 2 laps. Otherwise the black flag comes out.

You should re-read that banner. It's so the riders can tweet and check their Instagram.
