Supermoto going strong!

Cascadia Supermoto is ready for another season of racing!

Brad DeLong has got a target on his back after taking the #1 Plate last year in Open SM.

Many new Husqvarna 450s are out there getting prepped for our series.

We hope to see more new faces this year! As always feel free to reach out with any questions, we're more than happy to help.

  Only if I get my health back on track in 2018...
Missed out last year because of health issues. Hope I can make it out to Mcminnville this year.

  Depends on my mood.
Even if you don't race, go and watch!

The events seem to well ran from a spectators perspective. Very little downtime on the track, so you get to see a lot of laps. Lots of variety in classes and not a lot of ego, just a bunch of folks out racing and having a good time!

Congrats on your second season!

1) go to TriCity Kart Club | Great Karting in Southeast Washington State
2)select "calendar"
3)any weekend that is not a "race weekend" is open for practice.

They run classes based on what shows up. If no Karts show, the supermotos get the track for the whole day, and vice-versa.

LRT, you bet!

TCKC is managed by the kart club of it's name (Tri Cities Kart Club) they allow bikes any day regular practice is scheduled. ( Calendar | TriCity Kart Club )

You will share the day with any karts that are there. Generally, there are 2 or 3 kart sessions for their different size motors/youths, and 1 session for supermoto. Regardless, they should have 1 session per hour. There is very little downtime between sessions.

Track goes hot at 10AM, gate opens at 9AM to give the volunteer member time to set up the track. The track closes at 4PM. If the volunteer that day is feeling generous, you may get extra time.

However, there is no use of the dirt section during practice days. 1) it would bring dirt onto the track 2) We're still small and caring for the dirt section between races is important.

The other rule of practice days is that you must walk your bike from your pit, to the staging area. Karts do not drive in the pits, they roll to the staging area as well. Engines on is OK, but no riding in the pits on practice days.

Cost is only $40 for the day, $30 for CSM members. TCKC has bathrooms with running water, and a shower. The pits have 120V power, and water spigots.

I do not recommend going the day before a kart race, check their schedule - linked above.

That's really just about it for practicing, it's very simple. I just try to remind everybody that they are wonderful hosts to Cascadia, and to make sure we respect their facility.

On our own schedule I list weekends that I think are good for SM practice, and generally you'll see more bikes out on those days. I will add more as the season progresses, I am waiting to see some other schedules. Schedule Cascadia SuperMoto


Edit: wrench beat me to it!

Awesome, Thanks for the info.. Im surprised they are not as detailed in their website. Having cost helps a lot. I will plan on hitting it up a few times this year. I just moved to spokane and noticed there is a cart track here also, but no real details on use for supermoto.

I been mainly a sportbike guy. But taking a liter bike on a big track gets costly. I figure its cost less to track a supermoto.

I wish people are more into supermoto, seems like a dying breed compared to the early and mid 2000's.. I think people dont want to take a chance to buy something they might not like. I accidentally got into one due to low funds, after totaling my zx636 hitting a deer. Got the only bike I could afford which was a drz400sm.. Had a blast on it in the canyons, and always wished it had a bit more power and suspension/brakes. Went and got a husky 630, great bike and got stolen.

Now im back and bought a 525 exc.. Its supermoto'ed. Extra SMR suspension should be installed for the track.. If you see me on a group ride and want to test it out let me know. Trying to get more people into it.

plus - running from cops is WAY more fun when you can ride up the stairs.

I hope more people do! Most of our grids were 8 - 15 bikes last year. With the way things are looking so far this year, I won't be surprised if they're all 10+

Makes for some good racing!

lol.. I do the same, with youtube.. But as guy with a family to provide for. Its cheaper to get cited.

Im timid about riding in restricted areas.. I do like the tightest goat roads in the canyons. There is just not many roads like that here besides fire-roads surprisingly.
