This will provide Lewis once again with the opportunity to compete against not only some of the worlds elite Supermoto racers, but also stars from the world of road racing and motocross as they all fight for supremacy at this legendary event.

The very best riders from countries all over the World put their usual rivalries aside to compete as a national team to decide who really are the masters of supermoto. Current champions Germany will find it difficult to retain their crown as Team Italia are clear favorites.
