What is supermoto?
It began back in the late 1970s when someone wondered who was the best
all-around motorcycle racer and from which discipline would he come. Would
it be a road racer, an off-road racer or perhaps a flat track pilot? From
that was born the notion of a new type of motorcycle race. It was first
called superbikers and it blended on- and off-road racing by featuring
a track comprised of both pavement and dirt. Motocross bikes proved to
be the best choice for this new form of racing and with minimal modifications
a racer could easily build a competitive mount. The discipline prospered
in the United States for awhile and then disappeared, perhaps because
of the trend towards specialization. It found a home in Europe and grew
modestly. Stateside, local clubs began to emerge as interest returned.
Now, in a big way, supermoto will return to where it all started in the
form of an all new national series called the AMA Red Bull Supermoto Championship.
On March 6, 2003, AMA Pro Racing announced the details on it's new AMA
Red Bull Supermoto Championship.
