Alex Salvini, owner of THE RIDE ACADEMY Alex Salvini Signed said: "As an FIM Sustainability Ambassador, I have a big responsibility to introduce a sustainable lifestyle in all our actions. I always protect the environment during my competitions, and I believe that working in partnership with Ride Green and incorporating the principles of sustainable motorcycling in my academy is the best way to send a message and raise awareness amongst the big off-road family."

Kattia Juárez FIM International Sustainability Commission’s Director added: “It has been a true pleasure to work alongside Alex. We have been preparing the material and offering him advice in all areas where he needed assistance. THE RIDE ACADEMY Alex Salvini Signed structure has been planned with the general principles of our Ride Green Programme and regulations in mind, and Alex has incorporated significant areas such as biodiversity protection, gender equality, and plastic reduction. We are optimistic that these changes will lead to a responsible practice of sports, and the student's behaviour will reflect this positive impact.”
