As some of you may have heard Supermoto East Coast will continue as the FIM North American Supermoto Championship. Jay Kliger and Marco Pedde of FIM-NA SM (SMEC) have worked extremely hard to put together a top level Supermoto Series and have thus far succeeded. They are now associated with the surrounding sanctioning bodies; the American Motorcycle Association (AMA),Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA), Supermoto Quebec and Supermoto Ontario.
For currently Supermoto East Coast members 2014 credentials, classes, championship points and events will remain the same as planned for the 2014 season. With the introduction of the FIM-NA Supermoto Championship, SMEC riders will receive year end FIM-NA Championship status for their selective class. Champions will also be inscribed into the 2014 FIM Yearbook and results will be publicized on the FIM-NA website.
FIM-NA will also recieve 2 spots for the Mettet Superbiker race this year given out to the First and Second place rider in their SMEC1 Class. Last Year they Sent Miles Thornton, who placed third in their Starbiker class and Eric Stump who DNF'd due to a crash during the final. As the event gets closer we will give you all a break down on how the event works and the difference between the different classes run there as it can be confusing at times.
Now onto the some of the Most exciting news I've hear in a long while. FIM-NA will be putting together a USA Team for the Supermoto of Nations. The location of the event is unknown as of right now but has usually taken place at Pleven in Bulgaria. Some of you may know that as one of the more famous tracks with the asphalt jumps and berms. I don't know about you guys but I am extremely excited to see some Americans heading over for the SMoN!
