While the SuperMoto craze may have peaked it's still a form of motorcycle racing that most people enjoy. While it was invented here in the US, the French are responsible for maintaining it's development. It started in California and was broadcast on ABC during Wide World Of Sports, back when cable was just really taking off. You may hear people over the age of 40 waxing poetically about this at times, here was what it was all about.
