Scar Off: the winners

Dailies -



Taking a staggering 58 percent of the vote, Justin Wells has won Hell For Leather’s first annual Scar Off. In second place is MCN’s Guy Procter and third is Andy Kraft.

Justin, who suffered horrific injuries and actually died twice and spent months in a coma after crashing while avoiding a deer will take home head-to-toe riding gear from Icon, including a Variant helmet, Overlord Prime jacket, Overlord gloves, Strongarm 2 Kevlar jeans and Super Duty 4 boots.

Guy, who was sorry-mate-I-didn’t-see-you’d by a retired hairdresser in an Audi TT wins an Icon Variant helmet, although he may change that to something more practical for his long convalescence.

Andy, who crashed on the dirt, losing a femur and gaining the longest scar ever, wins a pair of Overlord gloves.

Guys, we’ll be contacting you each individually to arrange things, check your Facebook messages in a few.

Thanks to everyone that participated, all of you need to be more careful next time.

      Justin, you definitely made me rethink what types of accidents I expect to get in, and motivated me to wear my gear. That looks like it hurt.

        Just reread your original story, and I have to say… you’re a badass, I’m sorry you went through that, and I’m glad you’re still with us.

          +1 I’ve had the opportunity to correspond with Justin, the man is a class act (nothing against the other two winners).

      Nice job. Send us a pic of the gear you won. (and try not to test it too much.)
