Todd: So Chris, what do
you think about these Supermotos then? Have you had an opportunity
to try them out?
Chris: Yes, I was lucky enough to stand in for Foggy
earlier this year when he got injured before the Belgium
round in Mettet. I kind of got dropped in at the deep end,
when they phoned just a couple of days before the event
and they asked if I could do it. So I showed up to the local
circuit with CCM and I just had a quick go on the bike and
it was real good fun.
Todd: ...and the race in
Chris: I got stuck in there and went and did it and
I mean it was brilliant! I am definetly, definetly going
to some more again without a doubt!
Todd: Did you find it easy
to get to grips with the Supermoto?
Chris: Up to a certain point. I mean the guys that do
it professionally, they really are in a league of their
own. Its easy to acclimatise to Supermoto if you have done
a bit of motocross and a bit of racing, its kind of a mixture
of the two. So I was pretty lucky with that, but I've still
got a way to go to be able to win the race I reckon.
Todd: So what machine will
you be on tomorrow?
Chris: Well tomorrow I'm mainly in the "Fast Eddie"
when I'm on a KX125 or KX250, just whichever one arrives
for me. And over here (the supermoto track) again it will
be a KX250 with some slicks and some other bits and bobs.
In Mettet I rode a CCM, and it was really, really good!
But obviously, I just signed for Kawasaki so it's a little
awkward because they don't make an 'out-and-out' supermoto
bike unlike CCM and KTM and things, so I'll enjoy what ever
I'll be on, it'll be good!
