The FIM is delighted to announce that it has renewed its agreement with the Swiss based XIEM company in its role as the official promoter of SuperMoto. The new four-year agreement will get underway this year with two events planned to re-establish this exciting sport on the World stage.
The 2019 FIM SuperMoto World Cup will be held as a single event at Montalegre, Portugal on 21 July and will include a new Junior Class for riders under twenty-three years old. This important competition will then be followed up by another equally note-worthy event - with Carole, France set to host the 2019 FIM SuperMoto of Nations on 22 September.
This year’s World Cup will provide the foundations and the launch pad ready for the series to evolve, and hence it will become the FIM SuperMoto World Championship in 2020 as it expands into new countries and continents.
“We are very pleased to have been able to reach this new and valuable agreement with XIEM, that will take us through to 2022. We are confident that with the good collaboration that already exists between the two parties, that XIEM and the FIM can reinstate this spectacular sport and develop it across new continents from next year onward.” Said the FIM President Jorge Viegas.
Adding his own remarks XIEM CEO Danilo Boccadolce stated. “Firstly, we would like to thank the FIM for showing their confidence in us, and for continuing to trust us with this great discipline. We are positive that we can use 2019 to put SuperMoto back on the map and are already working extremely hard to ensure that we will have a full programme in place for 2020 and beyond.”
