There's just something about supermoto (or supermotard if you're French) that really works for me. The mixture of big capacity offroad machine with semi slick road tyres, giving it berries on both surfaces, magic. Thibaud Poulain's edit's are perfect examples of this an make me pretty envious of the kit and skill on show.

Mix of offroad/road machinery on a bit of both surfaces... sounds a bit like cyclocross. Maybe, maybe not.

On a bicycle front I'm pysched the focus (even if a while away) is turning to cyclocross. The tour of Belgium was a case in point as I managed to catch a few minutes of internet viewing on Saturday. The breakaway was a who's who of Belgian cross, inspirational stuff. CX mag has a better write up than I can manage but good to see the young guns firing as they'll be the ones to watch in the coming years. Good to see Stybar making the transition to road racing too - something more about Stybar in a future post and picture.

Oh yeah, Roland Desmet's photos have gone up another level with images from both the tour of Belgium and Espoirs Paris-Roubaix. Definitely a feast for the greedy Belgian cycling consumer.
