Chris Hodgson is the Double British Champion in Supermoto! What is Supermoto? It can best be described as a mixture of Motocross and road racing. It is a somewhat unique sport when it comes to racing in that the emphasis lies on slower speeds, usually less than 100 mph (160 km/h), on short, technical tracks, where it is more about the skills of the rider than it is about the speed. The races usually take place on a track that consists of both a tarmac section and also a dirt section, frequently made up of compacted clay. These dirt tracks make up around a quarter of the track and often feature obstacles such as bermed corners (a corner that has a banked outer edge that runs the entire length of it) or jumps.
Chris has been racing motorbikes since the age of 6. He started out by racing motocross for ten years. Chris won numerous Club Championships and finished on the podium in the British Championship. In 2004 he had the opportunity to enter Supermoto in the KTM Junior Cup. After winning this he received a sponsored ride for KTM and has progressed ever since winning 5 British Championships!
Chris has represented Great Britain numerous times and raced all over Europe with many podium finishes. Chis took part in SUPERMOTO OF NATIONS British team in 2011. It was held at the stunning Motorland Complex in Aragon Spain. This saw 21 countries enter the Supermoto of Nations, the largest entry since the event began. After a nail biting weekends racing Chris and his team finished second winning a Silver Medal! This is the best result GB has ever achieved at the event!
“My greatest achievement came whilst representing team GB in 2011 when we picked up 2nd in the world out of 21 countries.” Chris Hodgson
