Supermoto for a day

Published October 13th, 2003





Supermoto is mostly pavement, some dirt, big bikes, lots of stars. It’s fun!



This was round 5 of the AMA/Red Bull Supermoto series, held at Irwindale Speedway in southern California. It was quite a scene: lots of people, lots of name riders, a great Supermoto track, OLN television, industry folks, live bands, skateboarding, freestyle mx, and a raffle that benefited victims of the recent fires in the area.



Doug Henry, a former national motocross champion, won his first ever Supermoto!



The Supermoto Unlimited (over 500cc) was won by German KTM rider Jurgen Kunzel.



Thanks to the following for making our first Supermoto experience a pleasurable one:



Supermoto West, Shane Trittler and Randy Commans



AMA Pro Racing, Michele, Dean, and Launi



Resource Marketing, Scott Cox



Umbrella Girls USA, Natalie, Kelly, and Kristy
