Question about Rossi and Lorezo's suits. Air bag?

I noticed that when Lorenzo crashed in this Sunday's MotoGP race that he had a clear looking hose running from the suit to his helmet area. Also, during the podium interviews Rossi had the same thing.

Is this part of the air bag system that Dainese is using now or is it just a hydration system of some kind?? I wasn't able to see if Vermeulen had the same thing or not (he also wears Dainese and was testing the airbag system earlier this year).

Anyone know

Built in Camel Bak type system.

Bladder in the hump and drinkng tube to helmet.

It was a hot race and they even mentioned the hydration system in the hump.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

It was almost as hot there as it was at Laguna Seca in 2006.

Its crazy to think that while competing at the highest level of motorcycle racing, a guy could have the presence of mind to have a drink.

Or for that matter to make an adjustment to the brakes or what ever they can do while on the bike.
