Christophe Pourcel makes a winning debut with team CP377

Posted:

Team CP377 Kawaskai rider Christophe Pourcel has fired an early season warning shot taking a win at Lacapelle Marival (France) over the weekend.

Making his first appearance with team CP377, Pourcel won two of the three heats in Lacapelle to secure the overall win.

One of his main opponents was Tommy Searle, who performed impressively on his KX250F; Tommy finished second and two times third in the 450 class, to win the MX2 class with a second position overall.

"The track in Lacapelle was perfect, it was technical with deep ruts, slippery during the third heat and for us it was a good test for the bike," Pourcel said.

"We had already fixed good settings, and I got the best lap in the timed practice session. I made a small mistake during the first start as the ground was too soft behind the gate and I came third in the first corner. Bill was riding fast, but I passed him after a couple of laps to win the race. In the second heat I got the holeshot.

"Tommy was fast but I kept him four seconds behind me; the last heat was more difficult as we had the sun in our eyes. I rode carefully and we had a good final race with CÌ©dric Soubeyras. He was fast and we had some good passes together. Finally he won but that was not so important as I took the overall win.

"Now I will not do any race before the first GP. We'll go testing on different tracks to be ready for Valkenswaard."
