Randy de Puniet took part in the Bomboogie Xtreme Supermotard race at the Bologna motorshow over the weekend, thoroughly enjoying the experience onboard a Honda 450CRF despite some bad weather at the event and coming home in eighth position.
The 27-year-old also met fans and signed autographs at the show before commenting, `I enjoyed myself very much during these two days. The bad weather conditions slowed down our pace but it was good training for me. The guys here are very fast because they have competed in the Supermoto championship for a long time and I never expected to end in the top ten.´
Pichon (1), Everts (72) and Lazzarini (30) waiting for the start of the race
Today was the last day of the Bomboogie Extreme Supermotard. The 2 days of Supermoto racing at the Bologona Motorshow have finished. Benny Carlson (Ripit Aprilia) from the USA ruled the first day with a pole postion and a victory in the first race on Saturday. He finished almost 9 seconds in front of Eddy Seel (Suzuki) and Thomas Chareyre(Husqvarna).
On Sunday there where 2 races and a Qualification. Pichon(Honda) took the pole infront of Stefan Everts(KTM) and Adrien Chareyre(Husqvarna). But Everts was too strong for Pichon and beat him in the first race on Sunday with a small 2 second lead. 3rd was Adrien Chayere with Lazzarini following in 4th place.
Introducing the new Dorsoduro RR by V2 Racing. V2 Racing offers this bike in a racing (RR) and street version (R). Alexander Tognaccini will ride the V2 Dorsoduro RR in the new FIM Hypermoto series that will start next year.
I'm thinking about a for sale section on Supermoto Central where people can submit the Supermoto bikes or parts they have for sale. The reason for this idea is to make it easier to search for bikes/parts in other countries. Like in Europe the countries are quite close and postage costs not that expensive. But there is no place where Supermoto fans in the EU can advertise their parts/bikes to people in other countires. Except for the clumsy eBay ofcourse.
Let me know what you think about this idea! Vote in the poll on the right side of the page!
