Youthstream support Yamaha’s Ride For Life
By Youthstream | 11 May 2010
FUNCHAL (PORTUGAL), 11 May 2010 – Youthstream will support Yamaha’s project Ride For Life, a raid involving riders, journalists and customers, organized by the Japanese manufacturer in order to bring down to Riders For Health in Africa five Super Ténérés and the necessary spare parts for a three year period of usage.
The raid was started from Paris and will go through Spain and Portugal to finally reach Morocco. The Ride For Life will see the participation of riders such as David Frétigné, Franco Picco, Stephane Peterhansel, Helder Rodriguez, journalists and selected Yamaha customers.
The Super Ténérés will enhance the Riders For Health fleet of motorcycles used by the association’s medical staff when providing help in Africa’s most difficult areas, which would be impossible to access otherwise.
The Ride For Life convoy has left from the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, on May 4 and is due to reach Marrakech, Morocco –where the five bikes will be donated- on May 17.
More information on the Ride For Life plus daily updates of the initiative will be available online at Yamaha’s dedicated blog http://rideforlife.super-tenere.com as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Yamaha’s media releases on the event will be made available also on Youthstream’s websites.
