It all came down to a fright: “Negative CT scan,” Andrea Dovizioso celebrates on Instagram next to the photo of his damaged helmet. Last Sunday, Dovi was in Chieve to participate in the trial of the Lombardy regional motocross championship. He had fallen violently on his head and shoulder during the first round. Luckily, his helmet did its job, and he had no serious consequences from the accident.
“That’s what happens when you wear the highest quality and reliability,” was the rider from Forlì’s statement after having tried firsthand what it means to protect yourself properly, which is valid for all motorcyclists. Medical tests also ruled out complications, and now Dovizioso will be able to prepare to get on the Aprilia in three weeks for a private test in Jerez.
