THE DAINESE AND AGV COMMUNITIES MOURN THE LOSS OF THE FRIEND LUIS SALOM
Luis Salom sadly passed away after a terrible crash occurred during the Moto2 Free Practice 2 of the Catalan Gran Prix 2016.
Dainese and AGV, technical sponsors that have supported him since his debut in the World Championship Series, truly grieve for the loss of a friend and young talent with a prominent career planned for his future. In fact, the 24-year-old Spanish rider was already in his 7th World Championship season and, given his great results in the minor classes, people were talking about him.
Dainese and AGV wish to pass on their condolences to the family, friends and Team and to pay tribute to Luis, our young friend who distinguished himself since the very beginning for his loyalty and support of his sponsors. He strongly believed in promoting safety on the track and always actively worked towards improving protection technologies.
Luis leaves an immense void within the Dainese and AGV family. We want to remember him for his talent, his passion, his dedication to fulfilling a dream of becoming a Word Champion, his humility, his positive attitude and, of course, his great smile.
