CATALUNYA, SPAIN - The historical MotoGP weekend in Montmelo is upon us and it is familiar territory for the five-time time World Champion, Jorge Lorenzo. Jorge has a rich history at the iconic race track, having taken victory five times throughout his career. For the home coming of the 'Spartan', Alpinestars has created the Limited Edition "99 Camo" Supertech R race replica.
At just 20 years of age, in 2008, Jorge made his MotoGP debut at the GP of Qatar. With a second-place finish he made it clear that winning was his primary objective. 107 podiums, 44 wins and 3 MotoGP Championships later, Jorge sets his sights on joining a fine selection of GP legends to win the Championship with two manufacturers after joining Ducati for the 2017 season.
After taking his first podium finish onboard his Desmosedici in Jerez, the 'Spartan' arrives at his home race in Barcelona aiming to step higher up on the podium in his "99 Camo" Supertech Rs. His Limited Edition race boots feature all technical innovations of Alpinestars' class-leading Supertech R and will be available in a special colorway, resulting in a premium race boot fit for Champions.
Alpinestars' most iconic road riding boot worn by a roster of the fastest world champions past and present, the Supertech R features performance innovations, including a redesigned compound rubber sole, an ergonomically-profiled shin plate and a redesigned front flex area - all of which enhance the podium-winning performance of this CE certified boot.
