MotoGP rider Karel Abraham starts the 2012 season wearing Forma ICE racing boots which will surely be the start of a long and successful relationship. Abraham chose the Forma ICE boots after finding them to be most protective, lightweight and comfortable. The unique pivot design and high tech sole construction allows Abraham the maximum feel and control of his Ducati. After working his way through the 125cc and 250cc classes for six seasons, Abraham joined the ranks of the new Moto2 category in 2010 which would result in his best season as the Czech rider matured his racing abilities. He scored a first career podium at Motegi that same year as well as a first victory in the final round at Valencia. In 2011, he became the first Czech rider to compete in MotoGP when he and his Cardion AB team joined the premier class in 2011 using Ducati machinery. Abraham fought for the Rookie of the Year title against Cal Crutchlow until the final race of the season, where a crash took him out of the running for the title. 2012 sees the team with the same line up as he launches into his second year in MotoGP.
