Youthstream is very pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership with Athena. Athena and its associated brands have been next to the FIM MXGP World Championship for many years now, and they have participated in the growing of its popularity by providing fantastic material to most of the teams and riders involved in our different championships,” said David Luongo, Vice-President, Head of Operations of Youthstream Group SAM.

As official sponsor, the Athena and GET logos will be visible in a strategic position on the banners at the side of the track during all the races in the FIM Motocross World Championship, and during the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, which will be taking place at Matterley Basin in Winchester, England.
