Finnish SHR Supermoto rider Mauno Hermunen will ride for team Bulgaria at the Supermoto of Nations. Yes you read that right. Bulgaria not Finland.

How is this possible you may ask? The rules state that you only compete in the team of the country which you are a citizen of. Well the Bulgarian Motorcycle federation took care of that. They arranged a Bulgarian passport for Hermunen so he can get some points for the Bulgarian team in exchange for a paycheck.

Apparently the Finnish motorcycle federation didn't want to pay anything extra but expenses to Hermunen for competing at the Supermoto of Nations.

But should they really? Isn't it enough to defend the honor of your country?
