    Spanish Police Not Fair to Non-Pros (another LA troll)

    Police stop helmet-less Astana cyclist

    1 hour ago

    TENERIFE, Canary Islands Spanish police stopped an Astana rider Tuesday because he wasn't wearing a cycling helmet.

    Chris Horner was riding alongside teammate Lance Armstrong at Astana's pre-season training camp when a police cruiser pulled the pack of riders over.

    The team was allowed to continue after a routine identification check on Horner, who continued without the helmet since professional cyclists are not obligated to wear one in Spain.

    Armstrong, a seven-time Tour de France champion, begins his comeback from retirement with the weeklong team training camp, which opened Sunday.

    So does that mean that adult cyclists in Spain must wear helmets?

    Yes, but Spain's helmet laws are very, very vague. All cyclists must wear a helmet but are allowed to take it off when riding up a hill, for example!
