Chris Horner...tired of seeing your naked head

I keeping seeing Chris on training rides....sans helmet.

I know he is a Pro rider, a great bike handler, etc etc, but I want to see him have a great season next year, not injured or worse by some cell-phone talking driver in San Diego.

If nothing else, he should realize he is a role model for riders. Please, Chris...

Lame thread.
Watch any thing on pro cycling, any of the interviews during the the tours any documentaries and you would realize that very few of them wear helmets while training. Hell nobody wore helmets racing until it was mandated. If there are no helmet laws then let the man ride and stop *****ing about what somebody else is doing.

I thought this was going to be an anti-bald guy thread. My bald head always wears a helmet.
