The Supermotoland Husqvarna Junior talent team 2021
For 2021 the Supermotoland race school and race team based in Bullas, Murcia, Spain will be focusing their efforts on bringing new and young racers into the Spanish Supermoto championship. The team will be called the Supermotoland Husqvarna Junior talent team and will follow on from the 2020 ‘young racer’ initiative that saw the Supermotoland Husqvarna race team field 4 young racers throughout the pandemic affected season, with great success.
In conjunction with Husqvarna motorcycles and the teams prime sponsor, Advance moves International removals, the team will field a group of young racers of varying abilities in 2021, who have been selected from the many applicants received. The aim is to allow young international racers a chance to race at the highest level, with top level support and training to help them achieve new goals.
The Spanish supermoto championship is seen as one of the most competitive supermoto racing series in the World with a top class, international field battling for titles.
The SM-ROAD class is road/asphalt only, and is a breeding ground for racers looking to further their supermoto career, or to potentially go into a road racing career.
Racing a supermoto teaches you all the skills you need in road racing, and allows you to push the limits like never before, as the risks from injury or bike damage in a crash are greatly lessened. All top road racers usually have a supermoto bike in their garage to train on.
Iker Lecouna is the prime example of what can be achieved in this class. At the age of 15 he won the SM-ROAD championship before moving into MOTO2 in the Spanish CEV championship, before going onto MOTO2 world championships, and then onto his current position as a MOTOGP racer with the KTM tech3 team. He still trains on a supermoto as its the ideal training for road racing.
The team riders will be announced shortly as the team prepares for this year’s championship.
