ClÌ©ment Desalle won two races out of three and Jordi Tixier was on the podium each time for the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team in their final pre-GP warm-up race at Lacapelle Marival in France.
One week after their season debut at Hawkstone Park, and just a few days before sending the material to Doha for the first Grand Prix of the season, the team entered the French event to finalize its preparation for the MXGP FIM World Championship.
Both ClÌ©ment and Jordi felt comfortable on the natural layout, and posted the first and fourth fastest lap times in the morning before they clinched the holeshot in each of their three races! ClÌ©ment got the first holeshot and dominated the 20 minutes plus 2 laps race, while Jordi Tixier forced his way from an initial third to finish second. The next holeshot was for Jordi, who led the race for five laps and finished second, while ClÌ©ment clinched the overall victory, another 1-2 for the team.
