HJC Helmets has reached an agreement with Cal Crutchlow to become his official helmet sponsor for 2019 and 2020 in the MotoGP World Championship.
Cal has been a permanent fixture on the MotoGP grid since 2011. The British rider continues his relationship with Team LCR Honda in 2019 after celebrating three podiums in 2018, including a victory in Argentina. Unfortunately, an injury sustained in Australia excluded Cal from the final three races of the season.
Cal earned his first MotoGP victory in Brno 2016 at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix České Republiky. This new partnership hopes to see many victories together, perhaps at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix Deutschland in 2019.
A well-respected rider, Cal will become a vital part of HJC’s racing program. His maturity and experience on the track bring important knowledge to contribute to the development of HJC’s products, building on their 47 years of experience in manufacturing quality motorcycle helmets.
“I am very pleased to announce my new partnership with HJC Helmets," said Cal Crutchlow. "They’ve grown their presence in the MotoGP paddock over the past few years, sponsoring races and I’m happy to join the family. Despite being a huge company, they haven’t lost the personal approach and relationship, and this means a lot to me. Their helmet is a great product and I’m looking forward to working with them to continue to develop and evolve their design.”
“HJC is a family business, so when we welcome a new rider they become part of the family," said Mr. W.K Hong, founder and CEO of HJC Helmets. "Cal Crutchlow is a very competitive rider who maintains good sportsmanship on and off the track. We look forward to having him join the HJC family and representing HJC Helmets around the world.”
