The British Championship winning Skyzone Supermoto race team will be lining up at the start grid with a new sponsor for 2014 in the forward thinking and creative team at Duck Smart cleaning products.
|Chris Hodgson - Title winner|
The people at Duck Smart are new to the Supermoto scene but are keen to support both, the Skyzone race team and the sport itself and showcase their innovative, foaming and sweet smelling range of cleaning products, including the now famous Earth Mover Bike Cleaner which have made such a huge impact in the Motocross scene in the last couple of years. All of their products are bottled, labeled and produced in house at their HQ in Benfleet, Essex and with their own chemist constantly working on new products the range doesn't look to stop growing anytime soon.
Duck Smart's Paul Oughton tells us more “We looked at the sport of Supermoto last year, and towards the end of 2013 we were approached by Chris Hodgson about doing something with his team. We were impressed by Chris and his professional approach. Alongside that we have followed the great TV Coverage of the British Championships, which really reflects the speed and skill of these guys, and one thing is for certain they don't like to back off when it gets tight. The team at Duck Smart are really looking forward to showcasing our range of products and creative approach on the bikes of the Sky zone race team. We are quite a hands on team so are also pumped to be working with Chris as he goes for another British Title and we look forward to working with the team to ensure their machines are immaculately presented at the race track and to further develop our product range with them.
|Tom Ellam, one to watch|
The sky zone race team will be running a 3 man team of current British Champion Chris Hodgson and Jay Smith on the KTM SMR 450 with young Tom Ellam on the KTM SMR 350.
They will be competing in the 9 round British championship, as well as looking to fly the flag for Great Britain in the European rounds.
Hodgson said of the forthcoming season and the partnership “I am really looking forward to the season. We have set our sights high and hopefully everything goes to plan. Its a real privilege to have the guys from Duck Smart on board and we look forward to working with them throughout the season.”
