Sideways action always guaranteed with a little mud thrown in for good measure! – The sport of Supermoto racing (‘Supermotard’ in many countries outside of the USA) is still relatively new, but gaining in popularity as every year goes by. Appealing to both tarmac racers and off-road fans, supermoto is fast, exciting and now quite accessible with several clubs and national series taking place in the UK. Bikes are usually modified motocrossers (with wider rims and slick tyres, plus suspension tuning), but several manufacturers (most notably KTM and Husaberg) produce machines specifically designed for the sport. Loads of fun, relatively inexpensive (until you get really serious!) and a real test of rider skill, Supermoto seems destined to grow and grow.
