The roots of Belgian Supermoto are well anchored in Mettet, cradle of the Superbiker for 30 years. It is therefore quite natural that RUMESM has answered to organise the opening round of the Belgian Supermoto and BeNeCup Championships!

Supermoto is one of the most complete disciplines in motorbike sport, as it combines speed and cross-country. The sliding is omnipresent and the public is guaranteed to see a beautiful show.

The best Belgian riders will of course be at the start on a track that partially borrows the permanent circuit. The specially designed dirt areas have been given a lot of attention with many jumps that will delight the cross-country fans.

Kévin Vieillevoye will aim for his 3rd consecutive title but Ashley Barber, Olivier Pope, Sébastien Bouillon and many others will do everything to prevent him from winning. As always, several foreign drivers have also shown their interest.

Attending a Supermoto race does not leave one indifferent! Supermoto is a very spectacular motorbike discipline, offering incredible glides as the races are held on circuits with multiple surfaces. The numerous jumps accentuate this spectacular aspect!

The numerous categories available allow a maximum of riders to participate, whatever their level! The “prestige” category remains the most disputed, while the “Quad” category is sure to delight the public with its exciting races.
