SNVSM: Supermoto Stunt Bike Insanity

Supermoto Stunt Bike Insanity Primm NV, March 14, 2007 - He tried. He really did. Back in '95, after years of riding in the dirt, a 21-year-old Ryan Moore decided he had to turn his back on motorcycles - too much of a distraction! - and concentrate on his studies. Forsaking the sport he loved, he worked hard and earned a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. He'd become a grown-up! But then a friend pleaded with Ryan to repair his twisted XR50.

Motostrano's 2007 Race Initiatives

2007 is going to be the best year to date for Motostrano's racing practice. To put this in context, realize that for the past 3 years Motostrano has fielded one of the top privateer (non factory) teems in professional US supermoto racing. We put a lot of time, effort and money into building a reputation at the track that can sometimes seem bigger than life.

We're really excited to see what the team will do this year. Our main rider for the past two years and good friend Travis Marks will race along side Scott Sheak, Carey Hart and Doni Wanat and we'll have riders in all classes. Look for the Motostrano tent at these event and look for folks from our shop on hand as well. On the local level, our own Paul Giani has put together his own battalion of riders to compete up and down the West
