In two weeks and one day, riders from all over the world will be arriving in Mettet Belgium for the worlds largest supermoto race. Unfortunately I will not be attending this year, but lucky for you guys I went last year and I am very familiar with how the event works. Continue reading

Spotlight: Boxshop Speedway

Boxshop Speedway the hidden Gem of Supermoto. Though some of you may say that this is quite a bold statement to be made about just a little track in Parsonsfield, Maine; this track is more than meets the eye. I would even go as far as to state that Boxshop has certainly proven itself to be one of the “bigger” tracks in Supermoto.

Colorado Supermoto!

The bright Colorado sun was shining for another round of supermoto racing. This round, on July 17th, just as the previous round, was at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, Colorado, and saw the first ever sighting of a Grom in the club which happened thanks to two long lost pilots, Kevin Bland and Nate Esquibel.
Michael Henao so focused on the corner exit he forgot his bike.

Between two Supermoto’s with Brandon Ward

BW Cover

Brandon Ward is an AMA National Supermoto Pro rider, currently sitting in second place for points. I was fortunate to be able to get a minute of his time in his busy schedule to answer some questions for you guys about his racing career and his new venture BW Racing, which has some very ambitious goals for the 2015 season and looks to be a great push in the right direction for the sport of supermoto.

You would never throw just any pump gas in and if you do not use race fuel you probably only use certain stations. The 2 stroke can is clearly marked cause you would never want that in the wrong bike.

FIM National Supermoto Championship Round 5 Recap

BDMX CoverBDMX CoverRound 5 is in the books after this past weekend at Blue Diamond MX Park in New Castle, Delaware.  This event had one of the coolest backdrops of any track I’ve been to. The pits were set in what seemed to be an abandoned amusement park with guys pitting in between rundown rides and a mini golf course that looked like it hadnt seen any mini golfers in years. It was a very cool place to hold a SM race.The FIM National Supermoto crew (formerly Supermoto East Coast) put on a fantastic event with different activities for spectators and kids. I will also say that this past weekend demonstrated perhaps some of the best racing the series has seen so fat, this year.

Review: KTM 350 SMR

Review

 

It’s not every day that you get permission to ride, let alone race, as gorgeous of a bike as Chris Kemp’s KTM 350. This bike is simply one of his many gorgeous KTM’s that have had the full HMC treatment, and it’s the one he so kindly let me ride during June’s Lightning on the Wolf race at USAIR in Shawana, Wisconsin. As some of you may have heard, my bike faced some electrical issues and went down during practice that Friday. Chris was kind enough to let me ride the spare KTM he brought with him, and it lead to easily one of the most fun weekends I’ve had on a bike in a long time. Continue reading
