1994 Championnat de Belgique des Superbikes

For Richard Hubin 1994 was the twilight of his career and his place at the top of the Belgian Superbike field was gradually taken up by his Ducati team-mate Alain Kempener, Honda's Louis Wuyts and Supersport champion Patric Orban. The championship continued to struggle for numbers and only exceeded a dozen starters when international riders were involved, though the racing was still a spectacle and the championship appeared to be leaning in Kempener's favour until a disqualification at Ostende followed by a crash at Aalter that put him out but which Orban remounted from to still win the race. The majority of the calendar was either tricky urban circuits too awkward for the big superbikes or flat-out road circuits where riders averaged ludicrous speeds of nearly 200 km/h for half-hour long races; it was at one of these road races that the promising young Kawasaki rider Reggy Hebberecht lost his life in a high-speed accident, prompting the sensible decision to restrict the superbikes to slower circuits in 1995.
