My Paris-Bercy Supercross Recap video is here. Hopefully it can give you a ‘taste’ of what Bercy is all about. As I mentioned, you need to try to come to Bercy at least once in your (moto) life. And spend some time taking in what the city of Paris is like. You won’t be disappointed.
So, 18 year old Justin Barcia, of the United States is crowned King of Bercy 2010. American Kyle Chisholm finishes in second position. Frenchman CÃ©dric Soubeyras finished third overall.
Justin said after his victory – I knew that the start here in Bercy is very important, and I was focused for that. I’m proud to be the new King of Bercy, I know who won this event in the past and it’s great to be there. The atmosphere was incredible, and I enjoyed this European trip.

A few words about World MX Champions. World Motocross Champion of MX2, and certainly a crowd favorite, Marvin Musquin did injure his knee and didn’t race Sunday. To what extent the injury is – we don’t know yet. He is getting examined for his own personal doctor in Cannes. Marvin will be back in the USA soon, to continue his preparation for his first year of US Supercross in 2011.
World Motocross Champion of MX1 – Tony Cairoli – he was very impressive to me. Tony doesn’t have the same amount of experience in supercross as many of the other riders. But his improvement each time out on the track was evident. I could see by Sunday night’s main event that his confidence is improving, he is more comfortable, and attacking the track – just like he does outdoors in motocross.
Thanks again to everyone at the Lariviere Organisation. It was my first time at Bercy, but it won’t be my last.

French legend, Jean-Michel Bayle, rode his 1991 AMA Supercross Championship winning bike in the ‘Legendes de Supercross Bercy’. The Frenchman is still incredibly famous in France!
