Michelin has been announced as the ACU British Enduro Championship title sponsor for the 2019 series.
The French tyre manufacturer will build on the success of the established series as it partners with the ACU Trials and Enduro committee with Michelin bringing additional logistics and facilities that they say will enhance the consistency and raise the profile of the championship.
Over the past 18 years, Michelin has won over 40 enduro world titles in the sport’s different classes and remains a world leader in the development of enduro tyres at the highest level. 2018 saw the Michelin Enduro Medium tyre take the top spot in all classes at the British championship and many regard it as the tyre of choice for professional and amateur riders alike.
“We’re delighted to be on board for the 2019 Championship. This is a chance to show our dedication to British Enduro and our commitment to providing the best enduro riding experience through the development of our world-leading off-road tyres and support of one of the most prestigious series in the country,” said Michelin’s Two Wheel Operational Marketing Manager, Andy James.
Dusty Martin, ACU Trials and Enduro Committee Member commented: “We are delighted to have Michelin on board as title sponsor for next year’s championship. Michelin is a manufacturer held in high regard by the enduro world and they have a long history with our sport. Together with Michelin, the ACU is keen to see the BEC enjoy a secure and progressive future, maintaining its position as the premier enduro championship in the UK.”
