Today I got an e-mail in my inbox from Bernd Hiemer himself. Bernd is the 2008 S1 World Champion and he told me he really liked the site. He also noted I didn't have the Daytona Evo Supermoto boots in the Supermoto boots feature. Bernd helped designing the boots and has won the 2008 S1 World Title with them.
More info on the boots here
I've updated the special Supermoto Boots Feature with 3 Supermoto boots from Axo, AlpineStars and Diadora.

Husaberg launched their 2009 Parts & Wear collection. The collection offers a wide array of clothing and parts.
As is usual with past Husaberg models, the technicians have also developed a whole range of useful and visually attractive technical accessories for the new Enduro generation. These can now be seen at www.husaberg.com as well as in the new Husaberg Parts & Wear Folder available at official Husaberg dealerships.
This range of accessories - including a steering damper, a blue anodized CNC machined triple clamp, an Akrapovic Slip-On main silencer, diverse blue anodized covers and screws, as well as a Map Switch for the fuel injection - includes almost everything the rider can desire. An absolute highlight is the User Setting Tool, with which the rider's own riding style can be analyzed using the sensors of the fuel injection and the mappings, to a certain degree, can be individually programmed.
The new 2009 Husaberg FE's are sadly not available as Supermoto versions. Husaberg used to offer Supermoto versions of their bikes in the past years. But now Husaberg offers a special Supermoto kit to transform the 2009 FE enduro into a Supermoto.That way you can have the best of both worlds.
The kit includes:
- front wheel 3,5 x 17"
- rear wheel 4,25 x 17"
- set of rubber damping blocks
- sprocket support
- chain guide
- front brake disc 320mm
- brake calliper support

The 2008 supermoto pro season had its peaks and valleys but in the end the final double header at Infineon was an amazing event that showcased the true potential of the sport. After the Texas event was cancelled at the last minute, XTRM Sports Network went to work on finding a new venue and with the help of Infineon Kart Track, as well as Supermoto USA, the finals were off and running.
All three championships were up for grabs going into the finals and proved to be a wild spectacle of “I can’t believe that just happened!” Graves Yamaha’s Mark Burkhart and KTM HMC riders Troy Herfoss and Chris Fillmore were going for that coveted number-one plate. Leading into the first of the two days of racing, Burkhart led Herfoss by a slim margin with Fillmore slightly behind the two. At the start of Saturday’s main event, it looked like the title was all but lost for Herfoss as he stalled his bike on the first lap in the dirt. Meanwhile, up front, Burkhart eventually took command of the race and what looked like a hammerlock on the championship but Herfoss got his bike re-fired and put his head down and began to weed his way through the 20-some riders in a desperate attempt to salvage as many points as possible.
As the laps started to wind down, Fillmore started to reel in Burkhart and made the pass down the front straight. Then, disaster hit the bricks and Burkhart’s bike just stopped. The worst-case scenario happened—his motor let go. Thankfully the pack lapped most of the field giving the Graves rider a little hope for the title.
Going into Sunday’s race, Herfoss only had to finish mid-pack to take the title. But in true fashion of the weekend, he too was bit by a potential championship-ending debacle. During the heat race, his engine let go breaking a gear in the motor. If this had happened in the main, it would have all been over. The main event was not an easy task but in the end Herfoss made his way to third after Burkhart crashed while leading, giving the win to TLD’s Cassidy Anderson. Fillmore finished a hard fought second. So for the season, Herfoss was triumphant with Fillmore and Anderson rounding out the podium.

As you might have noticed not a lot was going on this weekend on the site, that was because my computer decided to blow up its power supply. Got a new one and I'm back in business.
Expect a lot of new stuff this week!
