The roost is set to fly again as Motorcycling
Queensland, in conjunction with the Queensland Motocross Subcommittee, announces
the return of Airoh Helmets as title sponsor for the 2018 Sunshine State
Motocross Series (SSMX).
With 83 World Titles under its belt and numerous major
events partnerships around the world, Airoh Helmets has a well-established
track record for helping Champions rise to their potential.
Chris Lynis, Media Manager of Airoh Helmets’ Australian
distributor Moto National, is again looking forward to showcasing his product
through Queensland’s biggest motocross series.
“We are extremely excited to be a part of the biggest motocross series in
Queensland,” said Lynis, “again looking forward to working with the team to
host the Airoh MX Series Sunshine State in 2018.”
A long-standing fixture on the Queensland MX calendar, the SSMX series has been
an important building block in the careers of many young riders, including
those the calibre of world-ranked international competitors Hunter and Jett Lawrence,
and Jett Alsop.
And it’s not just the rising stars on show with spectators,
the sport’s biggest names are champing at the bit to test the race fitness,
including the likes of two-time MX Nationals Champion Dean Ferris, who will
race every round.
“It's great to welcome Airoh and all our exciting
contingency sponsors on board,” says Series Coordinator and former Queensland
MX Champion Jason Watson. “It’s that time of the year and the excitement is building
from all directions.
“The Airoh series has one of the biggest followings in the
state, if not the country - we had 464 bikes at Round One last year and we may crack
the 500 mark this time around.
“For juniors, the series is a great stepping stone from the
SEQ series to state and national level competition, while for the seniors, it's
a great chance to push for upgrading.”
