Supermoto title fight hits Three Sisters

The MCN-backed British Supermoto Championship thunders into Greater Manchester on May 16 for a spectacular festival of sideways sliding factory-bike action.

Three Sisters race circuit in Ashton-in-Makerfield, near Wigan (just off junction 24S or junction 25N on the M6) is the venue for round four of the series and local lad and ex-motocross GP rider, Matt Winstanley, will be out to dominate the event in front of a packed home crowd on his brace of KTMs. Out to stop him running away with both the 450 and Open Championships will be some fierce opposition from eight different manufacturers and the cream of supermoto riding talent from all around the UK and Ireland.

Ady Smith, Christian Iddon, Davy Tougher, Johnno White, Sam Warren, Leighton Haigh, Matt Bates, Rob McNeally, Andy Mitchell and Greg Kinsella are just a few of the many riders capable of stopping Winstanley in his tracks.

The KTM Junior Cup - a series for 14-16 year-old youngsters on identical KTM200SX machines - is proving to be a hotbed of new talent and Three Sisters should provide the ideal tight and twisty venue for it. Gritty Welshman Daniel Griffiths (15) will be doing all he can to defend his championship lead from super-fast Cumbrian Chris Hodgson (15). The pair have been locked in a titanic scrap all season and the battle looks set to continue at Three Sisters.

Action starts at 10am on Sunday May 16. Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for students and OAPs. Accompanied kids under 16 go free.
