Lean Angle Presents Lee Kuhn Jr with Cheque from MICS Campaign

Steve Reed, president of Lean Angle Canada, the exclusive global distributor of the Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) for wearers of powersport helmets, recently presented a cheque to sponsored rider Lee Kuhn Jr. at the Inside Motorcycle booth at the 2010 Toronto Motorcycle Show held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Kuhn, a competitor in the 2010 Parts Canada Superbike Championship Amateur 600 Sport Bike class, was featured in an Inside Motorcycles magazine article that struck a cord with the staff at Lean Angle Canada this past summer.

The Hamilton-based racer is not only a top-level amateur competitor in Canada’s premier motorcycle road racing series, but is also a student at Trillium College's Paramedicine program. This past spring, Kuhn was flagged down by a fellow racer shortly after leaving the Circuit ICAR race track,  just north of Montreal, where he put his new skills to good use by assisting a downed rider just outside the facility.

Steve Reed, after reading the story by John Hopkins of Inside Motorcycle in the  July/August 2010 edition of the magazine, was inspired by Kuhn's desire to assist those in need. The Lean Angle team developed a campaign to assist Kuhn with his tuition by donating $1.00 of each $3.00 Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) helmet system sold through the leanangle.ca website and at the track in the months of August, September, October and November.

The Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) warns non-medical bystanders not to remove a rider’s helmet and provides paramedics and other trained emergency personnel with life-saving information about the rider's identity and medical history.

Reed, was recently able to connect with Kuhn to thank him in person and presented him with a cheque for Three Hundred dollars at the Inside Motorcycle “Winner’s Circle” booth at the 2010 Toronto Motorcycle Show.

“Lee’s educational background, especially his helmet removal training course, has helped him become an ideal ambassador for the Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) helmet system and for rider safety. We’re extremely proud to do our small part to assist Lee with furthering his education and his future racing endeavors.” said Steve Reed, President of Lean Angle Canada.

“It’s been an honour to assist Lean Angle in getting the word out about the Medical Information Carrier System for helmets and I can’t thank them enough for their continued support!” stated Kuhn. “EMS personnel are trained to look for this sort of medical information carrier. Having critical medical information at hand gives first responders the edge and can save precious seconds when it really counts."

The Medical Information Carrier System (MICS) for helmets is currently available at an ever-growing network of dealers, online powersport accessory retailers across Canada and is currently used at Shannonville Motorsport Park’s RACE racing series and will be implemented this coming season at the FAST Riding School.
