Marvin Musquin: “It was the best weekend for me. Like at Glen Helen I took really good starts twice. It was not easy to pass, so the start was important for me. I felt very confident on my bike and it was perfect for me to win here with my fans and in front of the French people. My bike was really strong for the starts and everyone on the team worked hard for me, so it’s very good for the championship.”



Tony Cairoli: For sure I’m disappointed that I missed the GP victory, but it’s good for the MX1 championship. I have a big points gap now and I can take control of the racing. I just want to be consistent and take a lot of championship points. For sure it’s nice to win the GP, but sometimes it is just not possible. I’ve already won seven heats and I want to keep going this way. For most of the track we only had one line, so it was hard to pass if you had a bad start. This is not really my favorite track but it was a good weekend for me. I won the qualification and the first moto and I was second overall.”



The next Grand Prix race is in Germany, June 19th and 20th
