Pleven (Bulgaria) June 19, 2012 - After a one month break the FIM Supermoto World Championship starts again his trip outside the Italian border where the first two round took place and Pleven's track it's ready to host the third round next week-end.

Dolna Mitropolia is a very fast and permanent circuit, the main feature is that is totally asphalt. With a length of 1720 mt (1204 mt slide, 516 mt sky section) it is one of the most beautiful track in Europe where SM World Championship is hosted since 2007 and Supermoto of Nations was held in 2008 and 2009.

In Pleven , the S1 leader Thomas Chareyre (TM Racing Factory), will make his best efforts to mantain the Red Plate on his TM. During the first and second GP of this season , held in Ottobiano and in Palermo (Italy), we understood immediately that more than one rider will contend for the S1 class title. Thomas Chareyre has won the fist GP and two races out of six this season. Second place is for the Italian rider Ivan Lazzarini (HM Honda Racing) and in third position we found the 2011 SM World Champion Adrien Chareyre (Aprilia Fast Wheels), winner of the Sicliy GP. Fourth place is for the Finnish Mauno Hermunen (TM SHR), whit a total of four races won, one disqualification and one fall. For all these reasons, the Bulgarian GP will be the most battled of this season where at least four riders will fight for the win.

With the Brit Matthew Winstanley (TM SHR) in six position a group of Italians riders close the top ten classifications, Christian Ravaglia (Ktm Team Miglio), Andrea Occhini (Honda Red Foxes), Elia Sammartin (Suzuki Racing Team Pergetti), Massimiliano Verderosa (Honda Team HBV) and Massimo Beltrami (Honda Team TDS Faor).
