MotoGP: Aleix Espargaro’s pink Valencia A-Team helmet (it’s very pink!)

The lovely readers of this blog can be sorted into three types:

  • News readers interested in the Moto2 and Moto3 classes (the primary purpose of the blog)
  • F1 crossover chat – people who love motorsport really are passionate about it in all it’s forms, you lovely lot!
  • The helmet art fanatics, they’re not going to be hanging in the Tate Gallery anytime soon but boy are some of them interesting!

Valencia always has a lot of helmet action, sorry in advance to everyone else, but there will be lots of helmet art news/appreciation this weekend!

Second up for scrutiny is Aleix Espargaro’s extra pink helmet.

If you need someone to win the CRT title, and no-one else can help you, maybe you can hire the A-41 Team! Espargaro shows us his A-team inspired pink lid, image via artist Urydesigns on Instagram, who also features in the photo, editorial use only, under the fair use act.

Aleix’s regular Shark lid is very pink anyway, but has taken away the giant 41 for an A-Team theme. The image was revealed by Oriol Gene of Ury Designs, you can also see it on Twitter by visiting @urydesigns.

All the angles! Image via Mierdaset's twitter account (yes I did spell that right, it's a parody account! Apologies for saying poo in Spanish, but they are the only people to show it in full! Details as above.

The rest of the helmet deals with what the A-41 team is A for Aleix; A for Aspar ; A for ART/Aprillia.

It is also a touching tribute not just to the team and factory he is leaving to move to NGM Forward racing’s Yamaha package next season (a nice reference and help point for his Tech3 Yamaha bound brother Pol) but also a means to celebrate being CRT champion and a thank you to his fans, having reached the milestone of 100,000 likes on Facebook. There’s a 44 on there too for his brother.

A touching tribute of a helmet for the Valencia round then!
