The following is from the FIM...
As part of its celebration of World Environment Day, the FIM is proud to announce that Valentino Rossi is joining the FIM Environmental Ambassadors’ Team. The project was launched in 2012 when Marc Márquez, Laia Sanz, Takahisha Fujinami, Randy De Puniet and Ken Roczen agreed to take part.
The Ambassadors are at the service of humanity and future generations. They have been invited by the FIM to be leaders and play a major role in the contribution made by our sport to a greener and more sustainable world.
The FIM Environmental Ambassadors are men and women representing different motorcycling disciplines and different cultures and nationalities. They are sportsmen and women with high standards who have lent their voices to convey the FIM’s environmental policy. Most importantly, they will spread inspiration and awareness among their fans, the motorcycling community and the sporting community at large.
