which will dictate the use of 17-inch wheels. That is why Michelin decided to
submit a bid following the tender process instigated by Dorna Sports. We take
this opportunity to thank the governing bodies for the confidence they have placed
in us today. Their confidence recognises Michelin’s expertise and the 26

sophisticated bikes, the power output of which exceeds 250hp. The level of
