ILYA MIKHALCHIK (UKR) #50 | IDM SUPERBIKE
„I want the best bike“. Ilya´s first answer on the question, why he wanted to join Werner Daemen´s Team for the 2018 IDM Championship. The 21-year old Ukrainian surprised with a second place in the season finale of Superstock 1000 European Championship in Jerez 2017. He finished right behind Markus Reiterberger and claimed his first podium in this competitive field. Ilya had to face a new bike and most of the championship’s track’s were new to him. At the 2018 final race at Hockenheim, Ilya became the 2018 IDM Superbike Champion. In 2019 he will stay on board to try to defend his crown.

CHRISTOF HÖFER (GER) #73 | IDM SUPERBIKE
From rags to riches. Christof Höfer – also known as „Fifty“ – has an remarkable racing background. When his body wasn´t exactly in the best shape for motorbike racing (his weight was 150 kg!), he decided to turn his life around for his racing passion. He soon fitted onto a race bike. By taking part in several amateur racing series and recently winning the German Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Cup in 2017, he took the big step up into the IDM Superbike category.
