See the latest X-games "supermoto" type sport?

I know it's not just X-games. I'm thinking Robby Gordon saw supermoto, saw something good, and is running with it. It's like supermoto with off road trucks. Formula Stadium truck racing including pavement and ramps... sound familiar? He's gonna make a killing on this!

Makes you still wonder what the AMA and DMG gave up on with supermoto, doesn't it?

Maybe someone can jump on board with Gordon and blend the SM with the truck races in one show!

Maybe if things go good and ESPN does the flat track next year the exposure might help the Grand National Series.

Supermoto and flat track the two greatest shows on two wheels...

I'm guessing you haven't seen Supercross and Motocross, then.

Looks pretty cool, missed that it was part of the X-games.

There were two Pro Supermoto events run with Gordon's Stadium Truck Series last year; San Diego and Las Vegas. The truck layout is not very supermoto friendly but it was a good idea and got more exposure for Supermoto which makes me happy.


San Diego


Las Vegas

I'm guessing you've never been to a pro dirt track race.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

Wow. Those two videos are of some crappy and dangerous tracks.

Yeah. Luckily, no one was hurt. In Las Vegas the worst was just bent rims from those landings. Lots of bent or ruined rims and the pavement had no grip so there were some low speed crashes. The Stadium Truck tracks aren't compatible for supermoto but it did get SM in front of a larger audience.
