Honda press release

Team Honda's Ben Bostrom, the 2004 AMA Supermoto Champion, will be heading to Las Vegas, Nevada to compete in the season final of the 2005 AMA Supermoto Championship. Dubbed the Red Bull Supermoto-A-Go-Go, the event is being held at the Bally's/Paris Casinos on November 12-13.

Bostrom, a former AMA Superbike Champion, had a superb racing season, finishing fourth overall in the AMA Superbike Championship. Bostrom also proudly holds a Gold Medal from the inaugural Supermoto race at the 2004 Summer X-Games held in Los Angeles, where he beat Supermoto World Champion, Eddie Seel, for the gold.

Bostrom will be riding a modified Honda CRF450R, as he did in last year's Vegas event, and also this summer's X-Games Supermoto race. "I'm looking forward to the great competition," says Bostrom. "Last year was a lot of fun, and this year should be even better."

That's great, but he doesn't meet any of the requirements to get any entry in the event.

unless of course, the rules have been changed to allow him in.

Bos and Langston were invited as defending Champions. 😢

Is there a problem with that?

I have no problem if that was written into the rules from the get go.

Shame on them for not showing up to any other event (and qualifying like everyone else) so they could defend that championship.

I guess it would be interesting to see if Langston shows what he would ride. He's now on a kawi for mx/sx (if he's healed that is).

I don't think he's showing up but he could always ride the KX500 that Chicken used last year in Unlimited. 😢

NMX = Neighborhood Motocross

In my neighborhood a lot of people ride and since there is only one way in/out there isn't a lot of through traffic with cars. Plus, there is a big park next to us and a walkway from the neighborhood into the park. The opening is just big enough to squeeze through on a bike. Plus, next to the park is a dirt lot with jumps. 😢

My personal NMX weapon of choice is my wife's TTR125L. This Sat we had a good time, kids on 50's, TTR's, Go-Peds, etc... I'm such a good neighborhood adult authority figure. 😢

I guess you must be popular in your hood...I found this on amasupermoto earlier today:

AMASupermoto.com Online Poll

What type of rider will win the AMA Red Bull Supermoto-A-Go-Go and why?

Poll comments:

Ben Bostrom is still the man to beat.

henry all the way

Ben Bostrom all the way

it seems that most people have not heard of some of the world supermoto riders and will be surprised at what level this racers will eat up the track. after all they have been doing this a lot longer... even though they are not used to ride the little 450 class my vote is for thierry or eddy to win it...

BOSTROM JUST ROCKS. CANADA

Henry, cause he's simply the best!

there use to the setup of the tracks

Ben Bostrom period. The finishing order in Vegas will be: 1. 155 2. 19 3. 3x

If Doug Henry's bike stays together.

bostrom will have a surprise at the level of the riders this year and the depth of the field so my bet is henry,but any one of ten riders has a shot at the win just depends alot on the course layout they come up with.No doubt it will be awesome!!!!

Ben Bostrom--enough said.

I'm thinking it will be an AMA official like MotoGreg or someone like that.

Interesting. So is Thiery VDB riding Vegas then? He's the fastest of the europeans i know he went down at X after seting pole but if he's in it he's my bet for the win. Seel and Delephine are good but i haven't seen them get very close to VDB lately over here. In Belgium the other week which was Seel's and Delephine's training ground Vdb came from behind to beat them both. In the final though Seel was keeping up till he crashed but that says something to me.

Some of the motogp guys might be good. Is it true Colin Edwards is racing? I'd imagine him to be pretty good at supermoto.

My bets on Vdb from Ben Bostrem then Delephine.

What about Alex Hoffman? He should be plenty fast.

Tony

I've never heard of him doing Supermoto...plus he's on a kawasaki what the hell would that be a kx500? Or a big bore 250F?

I'd be suprised if he does any good.

I believe it will be the DRZ/KLX that Avard rode last season with the green plastic.
