helmet brand signs Cal Crutchlow

Cal Crutchlow has signed a sponsorship deal with HJC Helmets for 2019 and 2020 in the MotoGP World Championship.

Crutchlow has been a permanent fixture on the MotoGP grid since 2011 and 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 him from the final three races of the season.

Crutchlow earned his first MotoGP victory in Brno 2016 at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix ?eské Republiky. Both parties in the new helmet deal hope to see many victories together, maybe even on another HJC podium, and this time at the HJC Helmets Grand Prix Deutschland in 2019.

A well-respected rider by all in the paddock, Crutchlow will become a vital part of HJC’s racing program, where it is hoped his maturity and experience on track will 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. 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.”

– Cal Crutchlow

“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.”

– Mr. W.K. Hong, Founder, and CEO, HJC Helmets

HJC helmets are distributed by Oxford Products.
