Athena and MXGP continue partnership and launch a new social competition in 2021

10 June 2021

Following many successful years of working together, Infront Moto Racing is thrilled to announce a renewed partnership with Athena for the upcoming season of the FIM Motocross World Championship that will introduce a brand-new social media competition as ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’!


For the 2021 season, Athena will sponsor a brand-new and very exciting competition that will allow fans to vote for their favourite rider before every Grand Prix on MXGP Facebook and Instagram pages. A rider of the weekend will be chosen during each GP and the rider who receives the most points by the end of the season will walk away with the ultimate prize and be presented with the special award for ‘Best Rider of the Year Sponsored by Athena’!

With nearly 50 years of experience and international presence, the Italian company Athena excels in the manufacturing of high-quality motorcycle parts including gaskets, cylinder kits, pistons, connecting rods and clutch discs for the most modern racing engines and is a global leader for the design, development, and production of Engine Control Units (ECUs) under the brand name of GET. The company is made up of three divisions, Parts & Electronics, Industries and Sportech, all linked by a common goal: to offer the public top-quality products made with solid know-how and selected specifically for the customer.


In addition, Athena/GET advertising banners and boards will be visible all around the MXGP circuits, with on-site presence at selected GP’s.

As always, you can expect to see the top MXGP and MX2 teams using their mechanical and electronical parts, including the likes of Antonio Cairoli, Jorge Prado and Mattia Guadagnini of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and the former WMX World Champion, Kiara Fontanesi.

Teams and riders using GET ECU’s will include, Monster Energy Factory Yamaha riders, Jeremy Seewer, Glenn Coldenhoff and Ben Watson, plus Gebben Van Venrooy riders, Calvin Vlaanderen, Brent Van Doninck and Kevin Strijbos as well as the Marchetti Racing Team riders Alessandro Lupino and Valerio Lata, along with Conrad Mewse, Bas Vaessen and Adam Sterry from Hitachi KTM Fuelled by Milwaukee among others.


Athena’s mission is to always be the most reliable, competent, insightful, and rewarding partner by offering the best solution in terms of technology, product, and service to fit each individual need.

Furthermore, Athena has recently launched its renewed e-commerce site where all motocross lovers can find a wide range of products from motor parts to accessories and apparel for the rider. To find out more visit
