"Two cases of a severe scrotal injury--a new, hitherto unreported pattern of injury peculiar to BMX bicycle riding--are reported. Two such injuries occurring within a short period of time prompted us to suggest that scrotal protection, as well as a crash helmet and limb padding, should be made standard safety equipment for all BMX bicycle riders who engage in the sport of jumping."
