As part of the tech team here at F-At Digital, senior product reviewer Stu spends the majority of his time writing in-depth reviews for road.cc, off-road.cc and ebiketips using the knowledge gained from testing over 1,500 pieces of kit (plus 100's of bikes) since starting out as a freelancer back in 2009. After first throwing his leg over a race bike back in 2000, Stu's ridden more than 170,000 miles on road, time-trial, track, and gravel bikes, and while he's put his racing days behind him, he still likes to smash the pedals rather than take things easy. With a background in design and engineering, he has an obsession with how things are developed and manufactured, has a borderline fetish for handbuilt metal frames and finds a rim braked road bike very aesthetically pleasing!

As far as I am concerned, no-one here has proven one way or the other that helmet use is mandated by the insurers of these events. However, you are the one who hijacked this thread to claim that the mandated by insurers line is false and yet offered nothing more than very vague hearsay evidence to support this claim.

I have at no point suggested that you are wrong, I have only pointed out how the "proof" that you offer could be made stronger if you wanted to continue with your claims.

At the time I made the enquiries, they were just for my personal knowledge, and I had no idea that I would one day become involved in a debate like this, so I didn't make notes or keep records.  Perhaps I should have.

On the other hand, no-one has provided any proof to show that I'm wrong, but there are lots of people making unfounded assumptions.
