Bell Helmets Announces Multi-Year Partnership as the Official Helmet of GNCC
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (January 24, 2019) - Bell Helmets is proud to announce they have entered a multi-year agreement to be the Official Helmet sponsor with the AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series presented by Specialized, an AMA National Championship, which includes all motorcycle, ATV and their new Specialized Turbo eMTB GNCC National Championship series.
“Joining forces with Racer Productions as a partner in what is considered the premier off-road racing series is a natural progression for Bell Helmets,” explains Chris Sackett, Vice President and General Manager of Bell Helmets. “One of our top athletes, Kailub Russell, has dominated the series the past six years and will now go after his seventh consecutive championship in the premier XC1 motorcycle class.”
Bell Helmets’ Moto-9 Flex is the most dominant helmet in off-road and motocross and is the helmet of choice for numerous GNCC race teams and champions. “The additional brand exposure and support for the series will definitely help drive buyers into the dealerships where they will not only find the Moto-9 Flex but also our popular Moto-9 MIPs - plus a complete line of Bicycle Helmets they will need to compete in the Specialized eMTB GNCC National Championship series.”
“It’s been a goal of ours to work with a helmet partner with a solid reputation like Bell Helmets,” explained Tim Cotter, Event Director for Racer Productions. “Bell Helmets already has a substantial presence at our events, but with the growth of our sport and the addition of the new Specialized eMTB GNCC National Championship series, this extended partnership really makes sense.”
