From 2010 Italian GoldenTyre new tyre supplier - Youthstream press release

FUNCHAL (PORTUGAL), 2 December 2009 - From 2010 Italian manufacturer GoldenTyre will become the sole tyre supplier of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship, using a One-Brand Control Tyre system since 2006.


The One-Brand Control Tyre system was introduced by series' promoter Youthstream in 2006 with the aims of reducing the tyre consumption per Grand Prix, giving an equal chance to all participants by providing them with the same material, increasing the level of competition and reducing the costs.

The partnership with GoldenTyre will follow these general principles and will be a further opportunity for the FIM SuperMoto World Championship collective.

The Italian tyres dedicated to SuperMoto will be made of a harder compound to provoke a longer life and more sliding, resulting in an improved show. Furthermore the price of the tyres will be reduced in favour of the team's budgets.


Youthstream looks forward to the new partnership with GoldenTyre starting at the first of seven Grand Prix's of the 2010 FIM SuperMoto World Championship - Italy on May 2. The FIM SuperMoto of Nations instead is due to take place in France on October 10.


GoldenTyre opened 25 years ago in Bientina (by Pisa, Italy) as a manufacturer of cycling tyres, establishing a solid business which has expanded to Motocross and Enduro since 2001. The brand was bought by Buymec, a branch of the Cavallini-Donati group, in 2004. The company is now a solid firm in the off road market, becoming well known first for their coloured models then for the tubeless Motocross tyres - now produced with Kevlar inserts. The current range of products covers also SuperMoto, Minicross, Enduro, Pit Bikes and Speedway.


Marco Cavallini, the GoldenTyre President, stated: "We are extremely happy to extend our partnership with Youthstream, which started in the Motocross business, to SuperMoto. We are thankful for this opportunity we are given and we will do our best to fulfil our position of unique tyre supplier of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship. The tyre compound we have chosen is meant to increase the sliding, together with the show of the races, and reduce the costs because the tyres will cost less and last longer."
