Special thanks to Valentin and Christophe Guinberteau, and http://www.mx2k.com



It was October 27-29 at the Palais Omnisports de Bercy near Paris.



It’s 6 motos run over 3 days. The champ is given the title ‘King of Bercy’.

And David Vuillemin is the 2000 King!



He won all six main events. Not much more to say than total dominance by David and his Yamaha!



Honda’s Sebastien Tortelli finished second. He finished third overall the first night, and then second overall the next two nights.



Third overall went to Mickael Pichon on his Suzuki. Mickael finished 4/3/5 over the three days.



Justin Buckelew is the 2000 Prince of Bercy – overall winner in the 125 class. He won five out of the eight motos he raced. He took first overall Friday, first again on Saturday, and third on Sunday.



AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath did race. He finished second in both

main events to Vuillemin on Friday night. He crashed in each of the main events on Saturday, but finished 3/4 for fourth overall that night. He did begin racing on Sunday, but pulled out because of an injured thumb from the previous night’s falls.

KTM becomes the first

KTM becomes the first





The new ‘SX’ line-up for KTM in 2004: 85, 125, 200, and 250 two-strokes, and 450 and 525 four-strokes.



On Tuesday, July 15, KTM invited us out to the Cahuilla Motocross Park in Southern California to check out their new bikes. A beautiful, hilly, and sandy track, although the weather was incredibly hot, over 100 degrees.



What’s new on these bikes? We’ll let KTM’s Scot Harden explain:



Scot: “The biggest areas of development for us on the 2004 models is the chassis, and suspension. A lot of work has been done on with regards to R & D, both in Austria and here in the US. Of course, there are a lot of other upgrades as well, including styling, body work and rear sub-frames. The motors received additional work as well. But we can sum up 2004 in two words: chassis and suspension. How can the public learn about these new bikes? Word of mouth is still the best source of information. Dealerships are a great source of info as well, and they have all the literature there for you to read. You can visit our web-site http://www.ktmusa.com. The site will have all the latest info in the second week of August. And, you can obviously learn about the bikes thru the press and various publications, such as the traditional print publications, and electronic media like Supercross.com.”



But wait … there’s more! KTM also announced another first – the first ever USA factory team for the Dakar Rallye. Most likely it will be the 950cc V-Twin machines (see photos below). Three riders, including off-road legends Paul Krause and Larry Roseler, along with a third rider to be named later. And YOU could be that third rider!



According to KTM, “Team member number three has yet to be chosen. In fact, we will conduct an unprecedented, nationwide search for the third rider, though it’s not a contest you’re going to see on TV. Instead, the search for the third rider will be determined based on his or her off-road racing background, capability to make good decisions despite enormous fatigue, adaptability to foreign circumstances and ability to project a positive image for America and the team”. You can check out KTM’s web-site to learn more.



Expect to see a lot more orange in ’04.
