Pirelli also confirms its ongoing partnership with the MX Nationals as Official Tyre of the 2013 Monster Energy MX Nationals.
Link International is pleased to announce an updated Pirelli Privateer Program with contingency benefits for competitors racing on Pirelli tyres in this year’s Pirelli MXD Under 19s Championship. This contingency program sees a wider range of tyres available to riders, including the new Scorpion MX Mid Soft 32 110/85-19 designed specifically for 250 4-Stroke motorcycles, and also the new Scorpion MX Mid Hard 554 range now available in this new size.
