Marc Marquez will aim to extend his perfect COTA MotoGP record to seven victories while wearing this special helmet design (see video below) in Austin, Texas.

The 'MM Rodeo Ninety-Three' is the third special helmet used by the reigning world champion at the American circuit.

"Created from the Rodeo tradition, inspired by the wooden signs of American ranches - taking this concept, together with the number 93 and without forgetting the lines of the Circuit of the Americas, we have designed this special helmet," Marquez explained.

"It's always fun to design these special helmets with Marc and we really enjoy each new idea, this design had been in Marc's head for two seasons, and now was a good time to make it come true," said David Mata of Dave Designs.

"With the design of this helmet we have sought to accurately capture the texture of old painted wood so characteristic of American ranches, and that's why we decided to try new techniques to achieve it, using traditional airbrushing and hand-worn paint."
