Rossi gains Monster sponsorship for 2009

Fiat Yamaha rider agrees to place energy drink logo on helmet for upcoming season.

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi has been announced as the latest sportsman to associate themselves with energy drink Monster, and will ride with the company’s ‘M-claw’ logo on his helmet in 2009.

Monster have pinpointed Rossi as a means of further raising the profile of the United States’ No.1 by-volume sales energy drink on a worldwide level, and the Italian was pleased to come to an agreement with them.

“I’m happy to join up with Monster Energy and to be one of the first European sportsman testimonials for this new brand,” says Rossi. “Monster is growing all over the world and I am very excited to be joining them. I think that together we can make something special and the M-claw is going to look good on my new helmet!”

Monster Energy President Mark Hall adds: “Going Big has been our motto at Monster Energy for some time and aligning ourselves with Valentino Rossi is about as big as it gets in motorsports,” said Mark Hall, President of Monster Energy. “We feel that Valentino is one of those rare athletes that not only defines his sport, he actually transcends it.”

Rossi’s helmet designs attract attention throughout the sports media, and will now incorporate the Monster logo in addition to whatever new ideas the six-time MotoGP World Champion comes up with over the course of the year.

MotoGP, 2009, Valentino Rossi
