With London 2012 still very much in the public eye another Team Great Britain will soon by attempting to lift gold at the forthcoming Supermoto of Nations in Portimao, Portugal. Two British teams will be competing against 16 other nations in the Olympics of motorcycling at the Algarve Moto GP venue on October 5-6.

The senior team consists of top World Championship racer Matt Winstanley who will be hoping to lead his team to the top step of the podium aboard his SHR TM machine. Lining up alongside him are current British Champion Chris Hodgson from Maryport (Skyzone KTM) and his closest competitor Barnsley based James Addy (SHR Honda) who will be putting their usual rivalries aside in their bid for to get a step higher on podium than their 2011 runner up spot.

The Team GB under-21 squad consists of three young guns who make no bones about their desire to ‘put one over’ their senior team mates. Swanley’s Ben Robb (Drilltec KTM) has represented his country three times and together with his close friend and arch rival Norfolk based Lewis Cornish (Nameplate Services/DCR) aim to work alongside European Grand Prix regular Malachi Mitchell-Thomas (SHR Honda) in their efforts for glory.

Team GB manager David Dearden announced his choice of riders and named the squad at the Blyton Park round of the British Supermoto Championship.

He explained: " After our fantastic showing in 2011 when we achieved an incredible 2nd place in Spain, Team GB are really looking to try for that magical gold medal & emulate the success we have seen at the Olympics & Para Olympics this year. We have a strong core of top Supermoto riders in the UK & the 6 chosen have earned the right, through strong performances all year, to represent their country at the highest level."
