Underbone Tuner was on the scene for the Kopiko Astig 2013 Supercross series during its kick-off leg in Cebu City. Below is the full race report.

1st leg held in Cebu South Road Properties (SRP).  It attracted more than 200 riders from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and  It also featured riders from Denmark, Thailand and Malaysia.
Despite the heavy rains the day before, the weather was perfect during race day.

 It was certainly a Danish domination as the top riders from Denmark put on a show as they bagged double wins in the Pro Open and International Category.  Team JO of Denmark was headed by world no 6 rider Nikolaj Larsen who took 1st place finish for both categories.  Mathias Jorgensen also put on an electrifying performance as he took 2nd place in the International Category, he was certainly a crowd favorite as the crowd wildly cheered for him as he performed spectacular stunts en route to his podium finish. 19-year-old Sebastian Kaergaard also had an impressive finish bagging 4th place in both categories.

The filipino riders also rose to the occasion as they gave it all they've  got and  put on a tough challenge  for the foreign riders.  Jonjon Adlawan the pride of Cebu took 3rd place for both Pro Open and International categories. Glenn Aguilar also put on a spectacular performance as he bagged 2nd place in the Pro Open but he had a difficult time in the international category but still manage to fight through and bagged 5th place.

In an interview with 3 time Danish rider of the year  Nikolaj Larsen “It’s a great track, very challenging,” “We’ve had a great time in the Philippines, and we are looking forward to coming back. The riders are very competitive and we really enjoyed the atmoshpere the crowd was amazing, but it was difficult to adjust to the warmer temprature at first which really affected our endurance but we were able to manage after 2 days of practice and getting acclimated”

Orbe Jacob also put on a strong performance in the Intermediate category while Jay Lacnit dominated the Veterans category. Janelle Saulog also put on a show to dominate the womens category while Aying Ledesma lorded over the enduro open.

Man and Machine Racing promotions President Jonas Adlawan was ecstatic as the 2013 opening leg was a smash hit. “We were only expecting more than 20 teams, but the turnout has been overwhelming,”  “For them to come all the way here and join our race will provide a strong challenge for our riders and push them to become even better.”

The Kopiko Astig 3 in 1 Supercross 2013 2nd leg will be held in Bais Negros Oriental. The action packed series is also scheduled to hit Bacolod, Dumaguete, Dipolog, Tacloban, CDO, Davao, Roxas City, Ormoc and Luzon.

Welcome to the Wild Side: Sticker Bombed Kawasaki Rouser/Bajaj 220 Street Fighter

Remember the Kawasaki Rouser 220 Street Fighter we featured last year. Well the bike builder
Robert Jon Olivarez is back with another kick-a$$ creation. This time around he has built his bike
to embrace the concept of the European Street Fighter. The Custom paint job with sticker Bomb
accents gives the bike a really aggressive and wild look, a real Hooligan bike. He had custom
machined hubs and spacers to accommodate the super wide motard rims and tires.
It is indeed a Kawasaki Rouser Bike like no other.

Custom machined spacers, hubs, and DBS Big Disk, together with the custom painted motard rims.
