Wow, 2019 just started with a new partnership in the MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow and HJC Helmets just announced their partnership in 2019 and 2020 in the MotoGP World Championship. Crutchlow has been using Arai Helmets for his entire riding career so this might come as a shocked and excitement for certain fans.
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 Crutchlow commented, “I am very pleased to announce my new partnership with HJC Helmets. 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.”
Mr. W.K. Hong, Founder, and CEO, HJC Helmets also added, “HJC is a family business, so when we welcome a new rider they become part of the family. 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.”
We will continue to update on the availability of the Cal Crutchlow’s replica helmet by HJC Helmets Malaysia.
