On Sunday, 14th of October, over 40.000 motorsports enthousiasts showed up for Belgian's biggest two-wheels event. Every one of them enjoyed not only the incredible weather, but especially the performance of an unseen number of Red Bull Athletes giving the most of themselves. Every year Mettet closes it's roads to create the biggest Belgian on/off supermoto road street circuit. The cream of the crop battle each other for 3 days in different supermoto and quad classes with as top of the bill the Starbiker race hosting all star riders (eg. Michael Pichon, Troy Corser, Joshua Coppins, ...) in an exciting race.
Everything was focused on Sunday afternoon (top day and maximum visitors) and we decided to broaden the spectrum. The motorsport environment holds many opportunities for our brand so we divided the show in 3 parts, hosted by the best Red Bull athletes in their respective classes.
Kicking off were our own Kenny Belaey competing with Adam Raga in a real MAN VS MACHINE battle on a purpose built trial track where even the FMX ramp (built in for later use) was utilized. Yet again these masters of equilibrium showed that concentration and balance can be (at least) just as challenging as raw bike power. The crowd agreed ;-) A big hand went to Kenny who showed that he didn't need an engine to pull wheelies and stoppies...
