The French Supermoto Championship is organized by the French Motorcycling Federation (FFM). It includes 8 to 9 rounds each year. It is generally recognized abroad as a very good championship with a high level. Each round takes place over a weekend, with practice sessions on Saturdays, and races on Sundays for most categories. In Magny-Cours, races take place at night on the Saturday.

During season 2016, 180 riders were on the starting grid in 4 classes (Prestige S1 / 450cc, Prestige S2 / 125-250cc, Challenger, Luc1 Cup). Results are available online (in French) at the disciplines’s official website:

The standing French Champion is Thomas Chareyre (TM, team TC4).

Supermoto is a discipline that stems from the first “Superbikers” in the US. Races take place in France on tracks that are made up of around 70% road section and 30% offroad section (“dirt section”).

In the meantime, here is a small gallery of pictures from season 2016. A few action shots, a few paddock shots, portraits on the starting grid or in the pit lane… Supermoto is a very visual discipline. There is also a really friendly atmosphere in the paddock. If you can, you really should attend a race and experience this :)

In 2016, Thomas Chareyre wins the French Champion title in Prestige S1 class, followed by Sylvain Bidart and Laurent Fath. In Prestige S2 class, Germain Vincenot Marchal gets to the top of the podium, followed by Adrien Goguet and Alexandre Chirot.
