Hat Bounty – help with replacing your helmet if you are concussed in a race

Of course we all hope everyone goes through the Season accident free, but if you do have the bad luck to have a racing fall that results in concussion the Helmet Bounty Scheme offers you an £80 voucher towards the cost of a replacement hat bought from a participating BETA retailer.

The scheme is operated by BETA in conjunction with the BHA and to qualify for the scheme you must have been diagnosed with concussion by the course medical officer during a Point-to-Point Authority race (a similar scheme applies under Rules).  The doctor will then “disable” your helmet to prevent future use and place it in a “Bounty Bag” that they will hand to the meeting Secretary who will return it to BETA  – you will then be sent a voucher for £80 that can be put towards the cost of a replacement skull helmet when bought from a participating BETA retailer.
