Hello my names Robert Sprano and I am 29 years old residing in my small hometown in northwest CT. I am a very dedicated and hard working individual. I am a heavy duty diesel mechanic by trade and father to a beautiful 9 year old daughter who loves to learn all about the sport and ride with me. Currently getting her set up with a mini moto to race some mini gp events this next upcoming season and very excited to see her grow her own love for this sport as I did . I have been riding dirt bikes since I could remember. My first bike was an old pw50 and the rest is history. I had a typical childhood growing up in the country, all there was to do was ride, fish or hunt, and I took to riding most! I began moving up in bikes as I got older and better at riding. Always trail rode around my neighborhood and would challenge my self with new trails and obstacles as the options where endless. Not only did I ride my self but I would attend every pro national ama event that came my way at either mx338 “the wick” or the legendary Unadilla. I’ve always had a nac for not only riding my bikes but fixing them my self and always making them better in anyway possible. My nights are always spent in the garage wrenching and tweaking everything until it’s rite. I didn’t start compeeting in any events until I was out of high school and did my first hair scramble event. Then I fell in love with compeeting in the sport. I continued on to do small events that where local but I always wanted more. Then in 2011 I bought my first supermoto, a 2010 Husqvarna smr450. I bough this bike because my love for dirt bikes and motocross and I wanted something I can road ride but still feel at home with being on a typical dirt bike chassis. So over the years of owning and riding this amazing bike I bagan to fall in love with the sport of supermoto racing and all that it’s about. The thrill of racing pavement and dirt on pure race slicks on a 450 thumper was just mind blowing so after I did my research and prepped my bike I finally made my first supermoto race event on August 28th 2016 at Oakland valley race park in cuddebackville New York as a novice/beginner 450 rider and I won 1st place. I was hooked form there on out. I entered a few more open practices that year to get the feel for this racing style. I practiced every hour I could get a chance too, doing cornering drills around cones in parking lots for hours on end, learning how too transfer my weight in corners and how to effectively performe the beautiful art of “backing it in” to corners. I came out at the beginning of 2017 season ready to compete in the 450 amateur championship at OVRP, I went on to win every one of my races for the championship and took home the first place championship trophy for 450 Supermoto. I am now racing in 250 pro/expert class and the sky’s the limit!!!
