Givi Asia Sdn Bhd stated their commitment for the safety of Police and Marshalls by sponsoring 200 Givi M30 helmets for the up and coming Le Tour De Langkawi (LTDL) which will run from 18th-25th March 2018
LTDL 2018 chief executive officer M Kumaresan viewed the sponsorship as added excitement which also ensured the smooth running of the race, which begins in Kangar this Sunday. He also said that this proves that there are many local companies that recognise LTDL as a viable platform to promote their products to a wider audience.
“The fact is that many agree that cycling stage races are a growing sport with a strong following and for sponsors, on our part we will try to ensure a win~win situation for each partner and company that contributes sponsorship,” said Kumaresan.
“We hope that when this race is publicised by the print and electronic media both foreign and local, the names of these sponsors and their products will be better known,” he added.
To ensure the safety of the motorcycle units within the race entourage, Givi Asia have provided 200 units of crash helments which will be used by police, marshals and media personnel during the race.
Givi Asia managing director On Hai Swe said his company felt honoured to be involved for the first time in the race that is a national project.

In line with our philosophy of prioritising safety, we have provided high quality helmets which are comfortable to be used by police and marshals during the race,” said Hai Swe.
