2016 AMA Supermoto Schedule - Returns to TV!
Tri-County Motorsports Rider Nick Reimer

The AMA Supermoto Championship, an official AMA National Championship, will hold six rounds in 2016 and make its return to national television.

“AMA Supermoto continues to grow in popularity and the AMA is encouraged by the growth not only nationally, but internationally,” said Ken Saillant, AMA Track Racing Manager. “The 2016 schedule offers our competitors an opportunity to race at many of the premier racing venues throughout the country and Canada.”

Sanctioned by the AMA, two rounds of the anticipated series are also to be sanctioned by FIM North America, which includes the AMA and the Canadian Motorcycle Association. Riders will be earning AMA championship points at every round of the Supermoto series, this coming year. In addition to that, the Loudon, New Hampshire, and Quebec City, Canada rounds, will give riders a chance at earning points toward the FIM North America championship.

After a long, eight-year absence from airing on television, the series will return to screens across the US. The Quebec City main event is to be featured globally. Three additional rounds will be presented on MAVTV Motorsports Networks with six episodes in a total of 12 airings. Unit Productions, directed by motorcycle TV personality, race reporter and Executive Producer Greg White, will produce the coverage.

“We’re really happy to bring Supermoto back to TV for the fans, the teams, the competitors, the sponsors and motorcycle enthusiasts alike,” said Matt Stewart of USA Pro Supermoto. “Being back on TV is one of the keys to keep the sport on track with its continued growth since our partnership with the AMA that reestablished the National Championship in 2014. We are also excited to be working with Executive Producer Greg White, who has a lot of experience with race coverage.”

White, who has been active in two-wheeled racing for decades is extremely excited to bring the sport back to the people.

“We are looking forward to broadcasting AMA Supermoto for 2016,” White said. “We intend to bring fans all of the excitement of Supermoto racing while showcasing the personalities that make up this thrilling form of motorcycle racing. Matt and the team at Supermoto are committed to reviving the sport and making sure its teams and athletes are healthy and happy by providing an outlet for sponsors and a chance for fans to be inside the action.”
