David Luongo, Youthstream Vice-President, Head of Operations said: ”The safety has always been the first priority of Youthstream and we want to thank Airoh, which is part of the MXGP family for such a long time to help the FIM and us by providing those helmets for the Flag Marshalls during the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations presented by Fiat Professional and for the future MXGP season.”
Tony Skillington, FIM/CMS Director stated: “The FIM and the Motocross Commission have been debating intensively on how to improve the protection of the Flag Marshals, who play such an important role in the safety of the riders who compete in the FIM Motocross World Championships. In cooperation with Youthstream, the Italian helmet manufacturer Airoh has decided to join forces in this project. Airoh will gracefully provide 60 helmets to be used by the Flag Marshalls at the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations presented by Fiat Professional this weekend, as well as at the FIM World Championship events in 2018. We are very proud to be associated with such a renowned brand, which also equips so many high profile riders. We hope that this initiative will be seen as a must have in the care and the protection of the Flag Marshals.”
