Internationale Deutsche Motorradmeisterschaft (IDM) | International German Superbike Championship
OUR ORIGIN. Being a permanent starting team in IDM since 2009, we established ourselfes as one of the best Superbike squads with six Championship Titles since 2012. IDM Superbike is known as one of the most competitive and important racing series in the world.
With eight IDM events in 2019 the Championship took place in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Czech republic. Alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW focused on two riders with maximum effort and won the Superbike title again in 2019. In 2020 also Austria was about to be added to the calendar, but due to the Corona pandemic the calendar war hold short and only four events took place eventually. The now called EGS-alpha-Van Zon-BMW Team competed with three riders in total, with Ilya Mikhalchik, Tim Eby from former EGS-Moto-Racing and the new addition to the team Vladimir Leonov.
In 2021 the team experiences another transformation. The two-time German champion Ilya Mikhalchik (2018, 2019, UKR) and Tim Eby (GER) get support from Pepijn Bijsterbosch (NED), who is returning to his old team after a few years and Jan Mohr (AUT). Mohr, who competed in the SBK1000 class in 2020 with the HESS Racing team on a Yamaha, will contest his first season in the EGS-alpha-Van Zon-BMW team in 2021 and is highly motivated. The 22-year-old, who did his first kilometers on asphalt in 2012, originally comes from the motocross sector, but has already gained experience with the BMW S 1000 RR in recent years, so he is not a newcomer to the fast BMW.
An exciting season with a lot of expertise awaits the EGS-alpha-Van Zon-BMW team at the start of the SBK1000 class. We look forward to exciting races and to finally getting started again.
