You may want to look fresh for every day at a race and bring your safety gear with you but it all adds to the luggage you've got to drag with you to the next World Cup or international race. Paying for overweight ain't no joke either. But some things you just need to bring to perform at your best. See what Argentina's Fede Villegas brings with him during a race weekend.

The Leatt Neck Brace is a product that can help prevent serious injury. The problem is, you will never know when you need it. Once you get used to it, it becomes part of the standard equipment that you wear whenever you get on the bike. It's better to snap the brace, than it is to break your neck. David Graf doesn't only wear the brace because he's sponsored by them, he wants to protect his neck in the first place, but also set an example for other BMX riders on the track. One can never be safe enough.

With people losing control it sent 6 of them to the ground, one of them was Kai Sakakibara. At that moment you know why you're wearing your protection gear. And you never know when a crash will happen to you. Most often it's somebody else causing the crash. What has Kai learnt from it and what protection gear does the Australian use?
