Paradise Garage are forming a two man team to compete in the 2015 Elite British Supermoto Championship (BSMC).
The riders will be aboard 2015 Honda CRF450R’s supplied by Terry Rudd Motorcycles. They will be converted and maintained by ourselves throughout the season.
With help from LRDesigns, and Acerbis UK, the bikes will stand out from all others with their one of a kind graphics.
Putoline have also come on board to supply us with their top quality oils needed to keep our race bikes reliable throuhout the season.
The series is televised throughout the year, and is an ever growing spectacle which is also very open to the public with open pit lanes and cheap if not free entry to most race meetings.
We will be writing pre and post-race meeting reviews in local papers and online which will help promote the team too so keep an eye out for these.
Our two riders Mike Ford and Owen Connell both have experience in Motocross, Supermoto and Road racing, both finishing in the top 3 of the 250cc British Supermoto Championship in previous years and they both aim to be pushing into the top 10 of the Elite championship.
The bikes are currently in the process of being converted, the bikes maybe new, but they still need all the upgrades to make them as competetive as possible, including brakes, wheels, slipper clutch, suspension modifications and much more.
Once they are built will upload full details and images before we go and get them dirty!
What is Supermoto?
Supermoto or Supermotard is motorcycle racing on a circuit that alternates between three types of track: flat track, motocross and road racing, using motorcycles designed for that purpose.
Races are commonly held on road racing or medium sized go-kart tracks with an off-road section in the infield. Most supermoto race tracks have a tarmac size of 50-75% and the remaining percentage of the course is off-road.
The motorcycles used are frequently custom-created combinations of off-road motorcycles and road-racing wheels/tires, known as 'supermotard' bikes
