French legends to race at Bercy

Posted:

For the French riders Bercy has always been a unique event, and all the best Frenchman have entered the famous European Supercross at least once.

Five, ten or twenty years after their last appearance on the track, the 'French legends' will be back in action on November 19th, 20th and 21st.

Most of the French or American stars have returned to Bercy as spectators after they retired, and all were celebrated each time by the passionate Bercy crowds.

This year it will be different for the 'French legends', who all accept the challenge to race one more time this prestigious event! Of course they will race only once per night and during six laps you will see in action most of the best former French champs.

The Legendary Jean Michel Bayle will be leading the 'French legends' with the number 1 plate -US Supercross Champion, twice World Champion and twice winner in Bercy - JMB is still considered a true legend twenty years after his move from MX/SX to road.

Another former double US and World champion will be on the track: Mickael Pichon. Still racing Motocross, Beach races or Supermoto, Bercy will be Pichon's first Supercross since stepping away from the sport a while ago. David Vuillemin, six times winner in Bercy, will line up after only retiring from racing last year.

Triple World Champion Yves Demaria, double World Champions S̩bastien Tortelli, Frederic Bolley, World Champion Jacky Vimond and Mickael Maschio will be also behind the gate, as well as US Supercross champion Stephane Roncada , multi French Champion Thierry Bethys, Fr̩d̩ric Vialle, Yann Guedard and Daniel Obelisco.

The gate will represent nine Bercy SX overall wins, thirteen World Motocross titles, four US Supercross titles, forty seven US SX wins, two US Motocross titles, one World Supercross title and no less than one hundred and fifty four Motocross Grand Prix wins!
