The show is one of the best motorcycling TV shows I've ever seen. It features Journalist and TV presenter Warren Pole (yes he can actually ride pretty well) going on a trip around Europe to complete several challenges like competing in a stunt competition, riding the Erzberg enduro and racing a drag bike. The best episode is the one where Warren gets trained by Supermoto Champion Fred Fiorentino to compete in the Mettet Superbiker. If you want to watch the episode go here and click on the little triangle in the bottom left corner in the video player and then select 23 lecon de supermoto.
I really recommend watching this episode!

The Quickshifter works by measuring the force applied to the gear lever and automatically shifts gears when the rider initiates a shift. This means perfect and instant gear changes at any throttle position without hutting off the gas or using the clutch every time, resulting in listering starts as well as easy and instant shifts during the race, giving you an edge on every gear shift. See Supermotodaz for models available, more models are being manufactured at the moment so if yours is not shown please e-mail Supermotodaz for info.
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.
