CARLSBAD, Calif., (Jan. 19, 2007) – Monster Energy is proud to announce the signing of one of action sports all-time most recognizable athletes, the seven-time Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series champion, Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath…McGrath!
Synonymous with greatness in the action sports industry, McGrath will be rockin’ the iconic Monster Energy glowing green ripped “M” Claw logo throughout the 2007 competition season, including events McGrath will be personally competing in such as ESPN’s Summer X Games (Step Up & Supermoto) and select European supercross events.
Added to a list of legendary motocross talents such as past McGrath rivals like Doug Henry and Jeff Emig, McGrath heads up a field of Monster Energy-backed athletes that transcends the ages – while also rolling current championship names across the world’s motocross marquee such as “Carmichael…Tedesco…Villopoto…& Pourcel.”
“The sport of supercross wouldn’t be where it is today without Jeremy McGrath,” said Monster Energy’s Mark Hall. “Jeremy brings a ton of energy and dedication to whatever it is he’s involved in – be it competing, product development or event promoting. He commands a great deal of respect, deservedly so, and we’re pumped to have MC on the team.”
“I’ve known the guys (at Monster Energy) for some time and have kept an eye on the positive things Monster Energy has done and continues to do for the sport of motocross,” said McGrath. “Whether I’m racing or signing autographs, I’ll be running the Monster M-claw logo and backing all of Monster Energy’s motorsports efforts that goes with it.”
