Congratulations to British based Supermoto team, Skyzone Racing, who have had two of their riders, Chris Hodgson and Richard Blakeman picked for the british team at this years supermoto of nations in Cahors, France!
The team, who are supported by Bikesure field riders in both the British and World Supermoto Championship and are committed to developing new riders in this extreme sport.
Supermoto combines Road Racing with Motocross. Most races are on road racing circuits with an off road section although a dirt section is not necessarily required. Unlike normal motorcycle racing the emphasis lies on slower speeds where rider skill matters far more than outright machine performance.
Round 8 of the British Supermoto Championships takes place next weekend at Blyton Raceway, Lincs.
£10,000 to be raised, 250 miles to be conquered, 4 Bikesure staff with no idea and 2 monkey bikes can only mean one thing……Monkey Business 2010
September 18th see’s this years Monkey Business 2010 run head off from Bankstone headquarters in Brighouse, Calderdale completing a full 250 mile round trip over the weekend taking in such sights as Harrogate, York and Scarborough all in the aid of raising money for the Yorkshire Air ambulance. We will also be stopping off at numerous motorcycle businesses along the way to shake our collection tins. Did I mention we will be taking on this momentous task whilst strapped to monkey bikes?
Meet the selected Bikesure A-team that will be undertaking this momentous task: Soppy – Quote staff – rides a Honda CBR 600 RR
Soppy has the added problem of being about 6 foot 4 which once strapped to a monkey bike promises some hilarious results. Used to the power of a CBR 600 RR, Soppy will have to make do with 125cc of pure adrenaline for the weekend. Grant – Quotes manager – can only just walk
Grant is the most inexperienced rider of the lot and plans to be on his arse more then a Brazilian striker! The fact he only completed his CBT weeks before the event doesn’t bode well for the trip!
Tommy – Quote staff – learning
Tommy is currently taking lessons and has almost completed his full bike test. Tommy burst out in tears of laughter when I showed him a picture of the monkey bike so a lot is expected. Luke – Quote staff – rides a Suzuki SV 650
Luke is by far the quietest of the bunch but has taken this incredibly seriously. He has been down the gym on numerous occasions, maybe one day he will have the balls to join!
