Multiple race wins have been credited to Kawasaki motocross racing teams throughout the weekend. Currently Kawasaki are leading all the top French series!
With SĂ©bastien Pourcel (CP377 Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit), Maxime Desprey (NGS Junior Team Kawasaki Pro Circuit)are leading the Elite MX1 and MX2 classes.The third round of the Elite series took place in Gueugnon. On this fast track SĂ©bastien Pourcel confirmed that heâ€™s back to his former top level as he has dominated all his rivals twice. Being the winner of the MX1 race and later the super final too, SĂ©bastien is now leading the series with three more rounds to go.
The new leader of the MX2 class is Maxime Desprey, second overall in Gueugnon. Dylan Ferrandis (Rockstar BUD Racing Kawasaki), still suffering from a knee injury, took the third spot in the MX2 class.
Gautier Paulin (Kawasaki Racing Team) and Joel Roelants (Floride Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit) were both involved in Mill, for the fourth round of the Dutch series. When they arrived in Mill, they had to deal with a different kind of sand than in Heerde one week ago. They had to adjust the bike settings as the sandy layout was dry, fast and bumpy.
It was a perfect working day for both riders, who are now working very closely with their team after being four months together.
Joel Roelants delivered another strong performance in the MX2 class; twice third, the Belgian will have a short break before the opening Grand Prix of the season, scheduled on Easter weekend.
Dylan Ferrandis: â€śI couldnâ€™t train since SommiĂ¨res, because of my knee injury; I was just able to practice twice. Physically Iâ€™m not at my best, and that was tough today. In the MX2 race I had a good start but I lost some positions when I stalled the engine in the second corner; I came back from seventh to fourth, put some pressure on Larrieu and finished third. I had another good start in the super final, but I crashed during the second circulation; another rider hit me, the bike was damaged but I never gave up and scored some points. Thatâ€™s not enough for me, but physically it was tough.â€ť
