The issue of helmet fit is a misnomer. Factory riders have their helmets made to measure. They are cleaned, washed - including the lining - and serviced several times each weekend. They are summarily replaced every few races, even if they are not externally/apparently damaged. Today the world knows this was an AGV helmet. Do you think they would risk their reputation based on a rider's preferred hairstyle?
