    Default Just Acquired a Piece of Helmet History

    Giro Aerohead, Circa 1987, still new



    It's part of the collection at the Modern Museum of Art:

    Still being talked about today:

    History:
    The Giro Aerohead C.1988

    Proracers looked with disdain at helmets and tribars until Greg LeMond used both to beat Laurent Fignon by eight seconds in the final stage of the 1988 Tour de France. It took until 2003 for the pro peleton to wear helmets during stages but they started appearing in time trails soon after LeMond’s win.

    Details of the race/images:

    "In 1989 America's top cyclist wears a Giro Aerohead helmet while he races to make up a 50-second deficit in the final stage of the Tour the France. He takes the overall win by a heart-stopping 8 seconds" -http://www.cycle.ie/giro.html
