The Indoor Supermoto in Zwolle this weekend was a huge success, with 40 Supermoto riders from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium , Latvia and Danmark the starting line was pretty packed. Also the grand stands where so full people where forced to stand in other places to view the races. There where 2 classes, the International class featuring riders like S3 Champion Oliver Pope, 4 times Dutch Champion Marcel van Drunen and Danish Champion Mikkel Caprani. The other class was the National class which only had riders from the Netherlands and also British rider Richard Blakeman. There where 2 races on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. The guys that where the fastest all weekend battled it out in the Supermoto Final on Sunday. The winner of the Superfinal wins 750 euro, 2nd 500euro 3rd 250.
The International class was dominated all weekend by Marcel van Drunen. He won all 4 races including the Superfinal. His speed was amazing, the supercross style track suited the ex European MX champion pretty well. van Drunen blazed through the whoop sections like there was no tomorrow, some riders looked like they where standing still when van Drunen flew by. The only one who could keep up a bit was Danish Champion Mikkel Caprani. After Caprini it was Belgian rider Stampeart Nicolas who tried to gave chase but he didn't came very close to Van Drunen and Caprani all weekend. But he was consistent and scored three 3rd places on Sunday.
In the National class it was Richard Blakeman who took the B final on Sunday followed closely by Dutch Champion in the National class Alexander de Haan. The two Jan's, Jan Rekers and Jan Winters where also in great form this weekend getting 1st and 2nd place in the A final.
All in all it was a great weekend with a lots of exciting racing(and a lot of crashes). The track was a bit too technical for some riders with less mx experience, especially the whoop sections where brutal. But everybody had lots of fun and the atmoshpere of the event was really good. Lots of racing, crashes, beer and beautiful women. Since the event was such a huge succes the organisation is preparing to go even bigger and better next year.
