Featured In the June 2022 issue of Roadracing World:

            “I was hard on the throttle, pushing through the long left-hand sweeper that leads into the in field of the road course at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, the Honda CBR600RR homing in on redline in third, when the bars were suddenly yanked out of my hands.

             “The bike speared off the pavement and into the grass. Just about the time I got the bars back in my hands, applied the rear brake gently and thought, ‘I can ride this out,’ the front wheel buried itself into a drainage ditch and I was launched over the handlebars.

            “When I opened my eyes, I looked up and saw a cornerworker waving a yellow flag over my head. She looked down at me, noticed that I was looking at her, and yelled, ‘You got hit!’ Well, at least I knew it wasn’t my fault…”

—”Crash Tested,” by Michael Gougis

One of the perks of working as a motojournalist is that when it all goes wrong, you tend to be wearing very good protective gear. It all went wrong for Michael Gougis at a track day in February, and he details how his protective gear—from AGV, Alpinestars and Arai—all performed in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
