I had a brief chat with Tom Ritchey who has a home along the course.

    I know that Tom Ritchey is an icon, but man, why is he wearing that Rudy Project Atmosphere Helmet backwards?

    I happen to own one of them (black), and you can detach the visor and put it on the front, mountain-bike style. But he’s wearing it backwards. Kinda like Gary Klein wearing his bibs over his jersey.

    Please someone tell me that Tom was just foolin’ around.

      Ishi: I didn’t ask Tom, but I assumed he was just having a laugh. It wouldn’t surprise me if he tended not to wear a helmet unless forced to.
