The FIM has an important role to play during Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in terms of educating and informing riders around the world how to behave in a correct and responsible manner. By reaching out to the wider FIM family, the FIM is looking to support local authorities as they put in place various safeguards in an attempt to reduce the impact of this pandemic.
Using the FIM’s social media channels – ‘We, The Riders’ and ‘FIM-Live’ – the FIM wants to reinforce the global message ‘to stay at home’ via its own campaign #RidersAtHome.
Even though riding is still permitted in some countries – the FIM is requesting that ALL riders keep their motorcycles parked in order to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries that could take up valuable healthcare resources during a period when they are already under great pressure.
The FIM is asking riders both amateur and professional, but also organisers, promoters, partners and Media from all disciplines and from all countries to record their own video messages that can be shared on social media to help spread and reinforce this important message: #RidersAtHome
