UEM: Supermoto Championship: Open Class with qualifying system

ORINO, 26 May 2007 – Based on the great development of the European Open SuperMoto Championship and the big number of entries (always between 40 and 50), starting from next weekend in France, Villars Sous Ecot, a qualifying system for the Open Class will be installed. The second free practise will be used as a timed practise and the top 32 will take part in the race. This will help the development of our sport and will permit more riders to have a chance. UEM

FIM: Van Den Bosch and Delepine on pole for first night time Supermoto GP

ORINO, 25 May 2007- The Oval Lingotto in the centre of Torino finally showed all its beauty during the opening day of the FIM Supermoto Grand Prix of Italy. After a very hot afternoon, Saturday evening and night were a little bit wet and cold, but nothing could prevent the two fastest Supermoto riders of the day from clocking the pole. Thierry Van Den Bosch was the fastest in the S1 class, as Gerald Delepine clocked the quickest lap in the S2. In the European series, Frenchman Baptiste Rheims was the fastest S3 racer, while Petr Vorlicek owned the Open class thanks to a flying lap. S1 Aprilia Off Road’s riders Thierry Van Den Bosch and Jerome Giraudo fought for pole since they first entered the 1200 metre track, but it was countryman Adrien Chareyre of CH Husqvarna snatching the pole at half session distance. The one minute barrier was still a solid rock, but VDB made to break it with one minute to go. No one else was able to get closer to the defending Champion, who was the only man o

GEARTALK: Supermoto Protective Clothing Part 1: Leather Suits

What type of protective clothing should you get? Supermoto racing or riding has its own unique set of riding conditions and with those come a whole set of protective gear issues not found in other sports or activities. For racers- we're talking about tracks with both asphault and dirt terrain, typically tighter tracks at lower speeds than roadracing and greater chances of contact between bikes during a race. A supermoto track will typically have one or two long straights, a lot of tight twisty sections, a few good jumps either in the dirt or by steel ramp and, for the pros, even a few odd obstacles like tunnels, un-even pavement and other stuff thrown in for fun. Many tracks are built in parking lots where run-off room is scarce- ie. the chances of running off and crashing into a chain link fence pole is considerably higher in supermoto. Rider position is usually more upright, yet all over the bike. Both feet will often come off the pegs on either side, with one foot stuck out forw

AMA: Rockstar/H&H/Motostrano Race Report

Round one in the AMA Supermoto Championship took place this last weekend at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis, MO and announced that the new Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team is going to present a definite challenge for the podium positions this year! Racing in the Unlimited class, Travis Marks, #64 and Doni Wanat #89 gave the leaders more than a little competition on their KTMs. Marks, who joined the team when Rockstar/Hart & Huntington and Team JSTracing merged during the off season, finished a strong 6th despite taking a spill in the dirt section and having a small collision with the French Husqavarna rider Belleraphone. Wanat’s getting faster every time he comes out and pushed the #8 position Mike Bergman through the track, finishing only fractions of a second behind him in 9th place. He’s been practicing hard in the off season and it shows. Tyler Evans, #53, a Rockstar Supercross racer, did very well in his first AMA Supermoto event and second ever Supermoto rac

FIM: SuperMoto arrives to Torino for this Saturday's Grand Prix

FUNCHAL, 21 May 2007- With the season opener of Castelletto di Branduzzo being far behind the FIM Supermoto World Championship’s shoulder, it is time to get into the second round of the series, to be held in Torino this Friday and Saturday . The Grand Prix of Italy will once again host the UEM European Supermoto Championship , that will be held together with the World Championship for the rest of the season. In a brand new location –the Oval Lingotto - World series leaders Thierry Van Den Bosch and Attilio Pignotti will fight hard to stop the attacks of runner up’s Adrien Chareyre and Gerald Delepine. In the European Championship, S3 series leader Elia Sammartin will hand the top spot to Riccardo Peroni , as he will switch to S2; in the Open class, leader Petr Vorlicek has a safe advantage over Alessandro Tognaccini, second but racing on home soil this weekend. S1 It was a great start to the season for Aprilia Off Road’s Thierry Van Den Bosch ; at his second year with the

AMA: Currie opens season with dramatic win

With reigning Hot Wheels Supermoto Lites champion Cassidy Anderson having graduated up to the premier class, ’06 series runner-up Brandon Currie was tabbed by many the preseason favorite entering the new season. He didn’t prove any prognosticators wrong in the 2007 season opener, picking up the Lites class win aboard his Graves Motorsports Yamaha YZ250F. However, it was anything but an easy victory for the young Californian, who found himself chasing Troy Lee Designs Honda’s new entry in the class, David Pingree, for the bulk of the race. Pingree stormed into the lead from pole and held firm in the position until making a costly error in the dirt section with just two laps remaining, allowing Currie to dart past and steal the checkered flag. “It was a battle out there,” Currie commented. “Ping was riding great and I was able to stay with him. The track was fast and you had to pick good lines. I am excited for the next round.” A disappointed Pingree remarked after coming home second, “E

AMA:Jeff Ward scores important victory in Supermoto Opener

Just as with any new season, the 2007 AMA Supermoto opener at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis, MO introduced the world to some new faces, was missing some familiar names no longer on the gird, and saw a number of established talents breaking in new liveries after switching seats during the offseason. However, no matter how much had changed, there was one very obvious constant: Troy Lee Designs Honda's Jeff Ward. The two-time and defending series champion proved ageless once again, scoring an impressive victory in the '07 season kick-off after a spirited battle with Frenchman Adrien Chareyre, an imposing talent currently ranked second in the World Supermoto Championship. Ward, 45, started the main event from second on the grid, lining up between polesitter Mark Burkhart on the Graves Yamaha YZ450F and Chareyre's Husqvarna. However, all three were forced to duck in behind Ward's former teammate, Monster Energy Kawasaki's Chris Fillmore, who stole the ho

AMA: Carlson claims first victory for Aprilia in Unlimited final

While Italian manufacturer Aprilia made an almost instant impact on the international Supermoto scene with the introduction of their twin-cylinder racing machines, it took just a bit longer to emerge a true force in the American series. However, 2007 looks like it could very well be their breakout season, thanks to pairing of 2006 M&R Supermoto Unlimited champion Ben Carlson and the factory Aprilia RXV550. Longtime HMC protégé Carlson quickly dispelled any thoughts that he would struggle in his manufacturer swap, as the Wisconsin native put on a dominant display at the front of Saturday's Unlimited contest. Starting from pole, Carlson dropped the field in short order and stormed away with a double-digit margin of victory. Afterwards, the enthusiastic young ace said, “Capturing Aprilia’s first win feels amazing. I am very happy for this team and everyone involved. I have been working hard and I want to put a great season together for everyone here.” The two men expected to give

NASMOTO: Horsepower Circus

The NASMOTO Horsepower Circus Comes to New York For Memorial Day Weekend SuperMoto Race - High powered motorcycles get-it-on in this extreme sport that has plenty of non-stop action just outside new York City.

The top Pro-Am riders from up and down the eastern seaboard are competing in this Regional Qualifier to become eligible for a

FIM: Gerald Delepine Married

2005 Supermoto World Champion Gerald Delepine made the most of the break between the opening World Championship race at Castelletto di Branduzzo and the second one in Torino, on May 26. There was almost one free month, and the 37 year old Belgian born in Hermalle invested that much time in his family. He flew to Las Vegas (USA) last week, and finally got married with his girlfriend –now wife- Laetitia. The couple will fly back to Europe soon, to enjoy their two kids: Oceane and Alan. But the just married Delepine has not much time for a honeymoon, as he needs to show up in Italy by next week. The FIM Supermoto Grand Prix of Italy is already in Spiderman’s sights, as the Husqvarna factory rider in the S2 class hopes to improve his current second place in the Championship. The fight is close, because current leader Attilio Pignotti of KTM Italia Team Miglio has just four points more than Delepine. It will be surely an interesting GP on Saturday night.

AMA: Ward Still the Favorite

AMA Racing news release Jeff Ward continues to defy the odds. Common knowledge would say that a racer of 45 would not be on the top of his game still winning championships against riders half his age. Yet as the 2007 AMA Supermoto Championship season approaches, Ward, the defending and two-time champ with Team Troy Lee Design Honda Red Bull, is still considered the rider to beat despite the fact that he will turn 46 in June. Ward heads the list of top riders expected to make a run for this year’s premier class, the AMA Red Bull Supermoto. The series kicks off on May 19 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in St. Louis and concludes on Nov. 11, with the Duel at the Docks in Long Beach. Ward, who won his first Supermoto title in 2004, earned back the title last year over Doug Henry of Graves Yamaha by a margin of 36 points (429-393). Ward lost the 2005 title in the final round to Jurgen Kunzel. Chris Fillmore finished 2006 ranked third with 356 points. Fillmore will ride for Mon

Q&A: What Tires Are Best For Supermoto?

We at Motostrano are asked the question a lot: "What Tires Are Best For Supermoto?" The answer of course is two fold and multi-faceted. In general, we recommend trying various tires and going with what you like best. For street duty we like the Continental Contiforce SM tire above any tire out there for for standard street riding, the occasional track day and even a race or two. The Conti is made in a 120x17 front and either a 150x17 or 160x17 rear. The Conti is an H rated tire, meaning it's made for the average speeds and weights in line with most Supermoto bikes, unlike your average sportbike tire like a Michelin Pilot Power or Dunlop Qualifer where the tire would be Z rated for speeds up to 190 mph and for the weight of a bike much heavier than your SM. This translates directly to quicker warm-up times for the H rated tire on your Supermoto, better tire wear and better handling. The Conti SM is designed from the ground up as a Supermoto tire , where others are desig

FIM: Husqvarna off to Good Start

The first round of the 2007 Supermoto World Championship held in Castelletto di Branduzzo last week end was quite successful for the Husqvarna CH Racing team. Victory was missing, but the team, riders and bikes got important results for the next championship’s rounds. Husqvarna got the second and third places in S1 class (450) thanks to a brilliant performance of the Chareyre Brothers, while Belgian rider Gerald Delepine was second in S2 class (600). In S1 class, both Adrien and Thomas proved to be young but enough experienced to chase the week end winner Thierry Van Den Bosch. Adrien got two second placed preceding in both heats the younger brother Thomas on third position. Two bad starts in the back lines conditioned Max Manzo performance who was back to the racing right last week end after a pause to recover form the injury occurred during the first Italian round. In S2 class Gerald Delepine had an hard week end in which was constantly in the fight with his rival

FIM: Boris Chambon at Castelletto di Branduzzo

Source: The first event of the FIM Supermoto World Championship took place on the beautiful circuit of Castelletto di Branduzzo in Italy. The weather was good and there were 8000 people at this first GP. Boris Chambon had some problems during the week-end, due especially to the youth of the Team, and to the little time he had to prepare compared to the competitors. Saturday, for the time practice, Boris clocked the sixteenth fastest time. Boris complained about a problem to his front fork. Sunday, for the first race, Boris got a so and so start (sixteenth), then moved back up and arrived to the twelfth place. In the second race, he started from the fifteenth position, and finished eleventh. In the two races, overall, Boris grabbed the eleventh position. Besides that, it was a good weekend as the Team and Boris fixed the technical problems, and can now improve the bike. The Team has some good information to work with for one month, in order to give Boris a c

CMRC: Team Jabouri Racing

MISSISSAUGA, ON -- Running the National SuperMoto series wasn't enough for Mississauga's Adam Jabouri, 15, so he decided to add road racing to the calendar. He will be running the RACE Super Series regional road racing series ( and the national SuperMoto series ( With round 1 of the RACE series coming up this weekend, Team Jabouri Racing has been busy testing its newly acquired Kawasaki ZX-6RR. An open test session a couple of weeks ago allowed Adam to get used to riding on pavement, as well as dial in his new motorcycle. "The test went very well," commented Adam, "the bike worked perfectly. The suspension was on the stiff side, but we've since replaced the rear spring with a lighter one. I'm really looking forward to this season. I'm excited to start road racing, and the SuperMoto schedule looks great." In SuperMoto competition, Adam will be racing in the premier PRO Open, PRO 450 and PRO 250 classes. Kaw

FIM: SuperMoto World Championship to race under lights

The second Grand Prix of the FIM SuperMoto World Championship promises to be one to remember as the kings of slide take it into the night as the championship hosts it's first ever night time round. By: Garry Morrow The Oval Lingotto in Torino, which hosted ice-skating in the Olympic Winter Games in 2006, will host the ground breaking round on May 26 and is sure to expose Supermoto to a much larger and wider demographic with the Oval Lingotto being only 500 metres away from Torino’s city centre. The circuit will be more than 1200 metre long, including a 300 metre long off road section, that will be a key factor in the result of the race. The average width will be 8 metres. The top class facilities will include a restaurant, and three bars.
