FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ATLANTA, GA. (APRIL 20, 2021)

Team Honda HRC is pleased to announce our new device to improve rider awareness and improve overall rider safety; hazard lights! With lessons learned at Atlanta 3, when Ken Roczen let Cooper Webb pass we saw an opportunity to develop a safety system to let a following rider know of your intentions to let them pass.

Any time a Team Honda HRC rider wants to give up position, they simply press the button installed on their handlebars, illuminating flashing orange indicators installed on either side of the rear fender, signaling to the following rider allowing a pass to be made safely.

We are hoping other teams and riders adopt this technology, we feel this is the future of preventing racing incidents, and may also improve the flow of leaders passing lappers.

Pictured is a rough photoshop edit of the concept in action during the 450 SX main event last Saturday, had this technology been available at the time. Also included is a close up photo of the new hazard activation button installed on a Team Honda HRC CRF450R’s handlebars.

Not sure this is really needed. The well-tested method of just slowing and pulling to the side seems to work fine.

This reminds me of the time I saw a fairly fast guy enter a local MX on a dual-sport. Watching him honk and signal to pass riders was hilarious.

So, Roczen is now the poster boy for a “ I quit button”?
Here I was hoping he’d get a title this year.

Fuck that's funny hahaha. Hope people can lighten up and have a giggle at it on face value and just see it as good banter. Dean Wilson took the rear view mirror thing and ran with it.

Well done.

Anyone here raced off-road and used a Stella?

Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals. I get my back into my living. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven.
