The season opener for BCSupermoto is fast approaching! May 17 to be exact. We will be running a FULL Saturday ONLY event. Who's coming out for some brapping? spectating? or maybe flagging? We do need flaggers so if anyone wants to get up close and personal with some supermotards come on down. :)

Hope to see some of you out there!

I would love to come and get my bike on the track for the first time! I tried calling Zach but he never returned my call. I was hoping to find out exactly what I need to do to have my bike track ready for my first time. I've already locktighted all my bolts, have painters tape for the lights, but wasn't sure about what else I need to do. Any help is appreciated!

I believe the only other thing you may require is a catchcan. Their requirements are *here*

Thanks JJ. It is at Tradex, Saturday at 8am-5pm. If you're not sure what you have to do to the bike you can bring it and we will get you all fixed up. Bring a small tin can/container. Right now it looks like we'll be doing open practice for most of the day, depending on how many riders for each class show up. This means that you will get LOTS of seat time for your money!!

Hey Shawn! Great times on Saturday, we appreciate you guys putting this on. I tried PM'ing you but doesn't seem like your profile is setup to receive them. Can you elaborate on where you bought your Michelin SM tires? cheers

Hey - not sure who you are lol -damn user names.
I am not on here anymore only on facebook where people use their real names.
Michelin dealer for supermoto tires in Canada is Wayne Kennedy http://www.kennedymotorsports.com/contact.html
He will ship to your door.
Most run the 14B med rear but the soft 29B has lasted on my 250 at Tradex (no long corners- less heat).
Everyone runs the 29B soft front.
These tires are expensive but worth it.
