European Supermoto series gets under way
The first round of the European Supermotard Championship takes place this weekend May 11 –12 at the Parc de l’Aumaillerie, Fougeres in France.
Big names like Thierry van den Bosch and Eddy Seel, the French and German supermoto series leaders respectively, will be there along with ex-road racing stars like Sebastien le Grelle and Alessandro Gramigni the two factory Husaberg riders.
The resurgent Maico factory will be competing with its fearsome 685cc two-stroke machine with Greek national champion John Boustas.
If you fancy a weekend away, the circuit is about 30 miles from Rennes and 200 miles from Paris. Rennes is the nearest airport. You can get more details on how to reach Fougeres by clicking on: www.ot-fougeres.fr
