We were down in Tallahassee last weekend for the fifth Tallahassee Supermoto Jam and got a ton of great footage! It was my fist time editing a video in years, hope you guys enjoy!
There will be a full write up of the event in the first print edition of SMR Magazine which will be available for purchase Friday November 28th so make sure to pick up a copy to read about all the crazy things that happened down there!
With racers coming from all around the state if not the country, It’s important to know that the race will be held Rain or shine. The most recent forecast shows some rain during the week (wed/thu) then dry Friday with a chance of showers on Saturday then SUNNY and WARM on Sunday for all the racing. If Saturday is too wet, we will plan to have a second chance for riders entered in the AMA classes to qualify for the heat race grid positions on Sunday morning. All riders will transfer to the main events and be eligible for the AMA # 1 plates and custom Medals for the top 5 finishers in each division.
Registration opened for the 93rd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Saturday November 1st! This is extremely exciting for me because I love this race so much. I’ve competed in it 4 times in the past 6 years and thoroughly regret not going to the two I’ve missed. This race is in my opinion one of the best events put on in the country and leaves you feeling and waiting for a year to pass so you can do it again. I highly suggest anyone who is qualified to run to do so, it really is an experience unlike any other. Like my article about getting to Mettet, here is how you get to Pikes Peak and how to do it affordably.

Do to the best interest of the riders, teams, and the race series, the November to be announced event has been canceled. Congrats to the 2014 champions, number one plates will be awarded at the AMA banquet in January. The AMA Supermoto staff has already shifted their focus to 2015 and plan to have a six race schedule released within the weeks to come. 2015 will bring new excitement to the AMA Supermoto National Championship, along with the return of already established success of the 2014 season.
So I know some of you are curious how the their first time on the bike has gone and from what I’ve been informed is that it went well. It took everyone a little while to get used to the Aprilia’s since they ride a bit different than the bikes that everyone is used to but after some laps Gage, Monte and Johnny were all getting used to the bikes and picking up pace. As I get more info I will be sure to share it!
What a wonderful time of year. Mettet has just ended and the Supermoto of Nations are coming up this weekend.
