Industry support from Harley-Davidson, Honda, Yamaha and Teknic Gear has made supermoto racing come to life on TSN HD. Other industry support from the World Supercross series, SuperMoto Accessories and Michelin Tires have helped build the broadcast in it’s inaugural season.
The show’s executive producer Dave Hatch from Whistle Stop Productions has proclaimed supermoto as Canada’s first “Made for TV” form of racing and expects big things in the future as the sport and new venues come on board.
SuperMoto Canada is pleased to announce the return of Teknic Gear, a world-class performance clothing and accessory manufacturer as the Title sponsor of the Teknic Gear Pro/Am 250 class as the official apparel supplier of the 2005 SuperMoto Canada National Championship.
When asked about this exciting new opportunity for SuperMoto Canada, President Ted Baker says “It continues to be an exciting time for supermoto racing in North America. The television coverage should really boost awareness of the sport and increase racer participation. The exposure this summer of the supermoto race at the X-Games and all new venues in the AMA series only adds to the sport growth”.
