Here's a shot from the World's, last lap and 200 metres from the finish. Dekker's on Zakirov's wheel, Zabel's slightly behind followed by Hauptman (Slovenia & 3rd), Konecny (Czech & 9th) and Mikhailov (Russ. & 9th). You can see Freire's helmet in the back and Bettini's firmly on his wheel. The rest of the picks have been uploaded in racing shots so they should be up in the next day of so.
I would like to be a pro so I don't have to wear a helmet (nm)Bruno

...unless you are in an organized event in the U.S., of course. But then, I think even the pros have to wear them in the U.S.

Helmets are law "Down Under"Dutchy

About 10 years ago helmets were made compulsory nationwide, even the Tour Down Under riders
have to wear helmets.
A helmet is like seat belt, neither can stop a fatal crash, but they can certainly reduce the
damage in low/medium speed accidents.

CHEERS.

Belgium allows those useless, goofy looking leather strap things, as shown in this photo. I'm not sure what they are good for...
