QUEENSLAND. 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 72 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.”

Race discounts apply to MQ licence holders buying Airoh helmets until the end of the SSMX series, so ask at your local stockist.
Brand new contingencies are also available from generous series sponsors Pirelli and Five gloves, the latter being available at each race.
