Just picked up the May issue of Racer X. On page 16/17 there is a Dunlop ad with a cool picture of Torlelli doing his best to move a berm with out a bull dozer. Anyway, as I was admiring the picture I notice that Tortelli looks a little cubby. On closer inspection it appears he is wearing a chest protector under his jersey. Anybody know what brand he is wearing? Or is he not working out as much as some would believe?

Hummmm... I never really noticed that, but on inspection he does look kinda big in that photo. If he is wearing a chest protector under there I would reason it might be a Thor Scattershield. It is a fairly small plastic protector and I have seen other run them under the jersey before.

Tortelli wears a chest protector under his jersey. I saw a pic in MXRacer or Racer X wear his jersey was ripped off at the US Open and he had what looked like an Acerbis of some sort. Very similar to the Scattershield.

By the way, It looked like (judging by the berm) he needed a that 756 instead. Looked Soft! ;)

Oh yeah Smitty I remeber that picture. It was from behind if I remeber correctly. It was hard to tell what kind it might be. It kinda looked like some bicycle protectors I've seen.
