Press Release / 2011-10-04 14:37:40
Anthony and Mat Ford – Dunn, Murcia’s two racing brothers are making final preparations for this weekend’s international supermoto race in Mettet, Belgium. The prestigious event in Belgium is known as the superbiker race and features the very best racers from motocross, road racing and supermoto, from all over the world competing in one fantastic race meeting.
Over 350 supermoto riders will be battling it out for a place in the superbiker final by competing in a number of qualifying heats and last chance races until the 350 become 40. The last 40 riders then line up on the grid for the grand final over 12 laps of the gruelling Mettet race circuit that features both a high speed tarmac race track combined with four dirt sections and a multitude of jumps and bermed corners.
The racing is frantic with the world’s best attempting to win the superbiker trophy and the 4000 Euros cash prize that goes with it.
Anthony Ford-Dunn has his sights set on the top prize but he knows that it will be a very tough job to beat the world’s best riders at this event and he is using the weekend to gauge his performance against others for an assault on the supermoto Grand Prixs in 2012. ‘It will be a great opportunity for me to ride against the world’s best Supermoto riders and learn from their style and technique and hopefully score a good result from racing against them.’ said Anthony when asked about his chances.
The Brothers have been busy testing and preparing their bikes for the event that starts this Friday morning with the Final race on Sunday night. They are both feeling confident after some excellent results in the recent Spanish and European championship events with the www.supermotoland.com team.
