Pavel Kejmar leaves Assomotor Honda

Before the World Supermoto season has even started, German S1 Champion Pavel Kejmar has left the Honda Assomotor team for unknown reasons.

On the website of Speedweek he explains:

"In the last few months I got new ideas on how to continue my career. That is why we broke up."

If this is the complete story we will never know, Ivan Lazzarini also left the team last year because he was unsatisfied with the team and the development of the bike.

Europeo Maxxis Supermotard 2002

Great video of the European Supermoto Championship back in 2002. Back when the main class was riding big +600cc monsters instead of the 450cc everybody is riding now. Love the battle between van den Bosch(3) on the KTM 660 and Boris Chambon(2) on the Husqvarna 630 at the end.

Thanks to Supermotomania.it for the video.

Aprilia SMXV 450 sneak peak

Fast Wheels Aprilia rider and Supermoto World Champion 2011 Adrien Chareyre posted this sneak peak photo of his 2013 Aprilia SMXV Factory. Details about this bike are a bit unclear, will Aprilia sell this as a race replica? Or is it just Adrien Chareyre's new 2013 livery and nothing more?

I wish Aprilia would make the SMXV street legal. I doubt they are selling many of them for MX but they are great for Supermoto. The strong twin motor is a bit much for MX but the power is great for riding Supermoto.

Everybody loves the SXV but the unreliability of the earlier models has hurt the SXV's reputation a lot. I believe there will be many riders interested in a reliable SMXV 450 for the street. Comment and discuss!

USA Pro Supermoto first round location moved

The original location of USA Pro Supermoto’s first race of 2013 that was set to take place in Palm Springs, California has been moved to Primm, Nevada. USA Pro Supermoto and Agua Caliente Casino made full efforts to make sure the race was going to be the largest supermoto race that the United States has seen in years. Unfortunately the local fire marshal was unable to approve the track. After many meetings and work hours there was still no resolution that the fire marshal would accept other than to cut the already small track in half.

Our next step was to talk to the race teams and riders to determine what was best for the series. Many individuals requested that the race be moved to Primm, NV for the already established Stateline Challenge. This would save many teams money due to the fact that they already plan to compete at this event.

The 2013 Stateline Challenge is set to take place on April 25-28. Pre-reregistration will open on March 1st. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused anyone. We will continue to work hard every day to make 2013 a successful year for USA Pro Supermoto!
