BIAT wishes to share a recent article on Triple J's HACK program, featuring Jay Borghero who's love for bull riding has seen him knocked out 30 times in one year.

Alarmingly however, is when desire and obsession to make some potentially serious money overweighs the serious risks concussion and being knocked out can cause.
