Everts beats Loeb on a Supermoto

 
Stefan Everts challenged rally driver Sebastien Loeb to a time trial ride up the muur van geraardsbergen, a road that's famous among cyclists.

Everts did the run on a Ktm Supermoto while Loeb was in his Citroën rally car (punching out around 400 hp). the roads consisted of tarmac and stone roads. The stone roads get very slippery when they're wet and this was the case so you'd think the car was a sure shot at victory. Everts managed to do better on the ktm, he beat loeb by 1 10th of a second. the track was rather short since runs were completed in under 50 seconds but weather conditions and the tight turns made things interesting. Everts actually managed to scrape pegs on the slippery wet stone roads using a curb to keep em on track. (text by Skully25)

Race Report AMA Supermoto at Fontana

Coaxed out of retirement just a couple of months ago, Jeff Ward put his Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull Honda into the winners circle at the opening round of the XTRM/AMA Supermoto Championship at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, on Sunday, March 22.On a twisty and challenging course, Ward got out in front early in the Premier final,but was passed by fast-qualifier Mark Burkhart on the newly formed HMC/Burkhart Racing KTM. That was short-lived, however, when Burkhart slid out in a minor fall on the second lap, putting Ward back in the lead and Burkhart in 12th place.

Silvain Bidart will race AMA Supermoto in 2009

 

Bidart already has some experience in the AMA Supermoto Championship

A while ago we announced that Sylvain Bidart would be riding for the Luc1 Honda team in the French Championship. But there is a change in this situation:

From the CHM Team is the news that French Supermoto star Sylvain Bidart will be joining the team for the 2009 campaign beginning today at California Speedway in Fontana! Sylvain rode for the CHM Team during the last two rounds of the 2007 season and took a second place in his first race ever in the USA, beating out Mark Burkhart for second place at the Texas round, and then running up front at Morongo before finishing fourth. Look for good things from Sylvain as he looks to add an American Championship to his French Supermoto Championship resume.

It is unclear if Sylvain Bidart will also race for the Luc1 team in the French Supermoto Championship. I personally don't think so because the French Championship is in quite the crisis after 2 of its 5 races got cancelled.
