Scorpion Sports USA (SSI) in conjunction with Scorpion Sports EUROPE (SSEU) is proud to announce their partnership with the Bel-Ray Husqvarna (GmbH) Factory Racing Team for 2014. The Bel-Ray Husqvarna Team will be competing in the FIM World Championship and International Extreme Enduro Championship and includes legendary riders Graham Jarvis, Alfredo Gomez Cantero, Mathias Bellino, Pela Renet, and Joakim Ljunggreen. Members of the Bel-Ray Husqvarna Factory Racing team will be outfitted with Scorpion's all new VX-R70 helmet.
"Scorpion and Husaberg have had a great partnership over the last few years," states Scorpion's Jean-Michel Pfrimmer. "With the merger of Husaberg and Husqvarna it is fitting to continue this partnership and support of Enduro and Extreme Enduro racing."
Scorpion has spent the last 3 years developing their VX-R70 off-road helmet with the likes of 4x Dakar Champion Marc Coma and a collection of World Endurance champions. The result is a premium competition helmet that is built specifically for endurance athletes.
"Scorpion has built a helmet that fits the needs of premiere athletes world-wide," says Jayson Wickenkamp of Scorpion USA. "Our brand is thrilled to be the helmet of choice for these world-renown racers through our partnership with Bel-Ray Husqvarna."
