    Nope. I know rlando Martinez races with an XC lid at times, and I haven't seen Sanjay wear one yet.

    norba rules only state that a helmet must be worn, but they recommend a full face

    Some guys don't wear full face helmets at NORBA races but I don't recommend it. I wear a Moto 6 motocross helmet that is DOT and Snell approved when I race or practice DH courses. I use a full face DH helmet for freeriding so it doesn't get as hot as the Moto 6.
