2 new Supermoto series in the US

 

Great news from the amateur Supermoto scene in the US, while the pro AMA Supermoto series is having some problems the small clubs are doing great. The new schedules for the 2009 season are popping up for the various series and they look really good. The amateur scene in the US is pretty healthy.

For example Colorado has a new Supermoto series called: the Supermoto5280 Series. 5280 stands for 5280ft elevation (1 mile high) which is the elevation of the city Denver. They are organizing 10 rounds at various tracks in Colorado. More info can be found at the special Supermoto5280 section at SupermotoJunkie

Florida also has a new Supermoto series: the Florida Supermoto Series. They are organizing 8 races this year. Their schedule can be found at our Racing section or on their website. The first race is during Daytona bike week and it is at the Starke track in Florida on March 7th. So if you fancy a race in the south go check out the info about this race here
