Junior riders well get the chance to develop their Supermoto skills at Broadford’s Junior Development Day on Saturday, January 28.

Victorian Supermoto Coordinator Bruce Hill says he will run Supermoto sessions which will alternate with the Road Race sessions at the JDD.

“We will be able to run with or without the dirt section depending on the requirements of the participants who turn up and the conditions on the day,” Bruce said.

“One of the advantages of Supermoto is that is has similar age/capacity rules to the dirt disciplines, so kids from 9 to under 13-year-old, who have 85cc 2-stroke & 150cc 4-stroke bikes, and 13 to 15-year-olds who have up to 125cc 2-stroke & 250cc 4-stroke bikes, can try out the short course bitumen track where they normally wouldn’t be able to ride it.

“Supermoto is the perfect way of getting them onto the bitumen earlier. As the Supermoto track is shorter they’re not getting up to the high-speeds of a regular road race track and they get to develop all the cornering skills that they would on a bitumen track,” Bruce said.

Bruce encourages anyone and everyone to come and give the sport a try. “There’s no requirement on the tyres. You just ride accordingly to suit the tyres you’ve got. We also have some leathers that we can lend out as well,” Bruce added.
