Palais Omnisports: Who will be the new, 2011 “King of Bercy” Supercross? Kyle Chisholm or Eli Tomac?
The three days of Bercy are magical and electric. It’s quite a ‘scene’. And tonight was “Day 2” of the three day extravaganza. Eli Tomac won the first night (results and photos here). And tonight – the big winner was Kyle Chisholm.
Kyle Chisholm with the win!
Let’s start with the main event results: 1. Chisholm (USA, Yamaha), 2. Tomac (USA, Honda), 3. Aranda (FRA, Kawasaki), 4 .Wey (USA, Kawasaki), 5. Soubeyras (FRA, Honda), 6. Izoird (FRA, Suzuki), 7. Searle (GBR, Kawasaki), 8. M Alessi (USA, Suzuki), 9. Coulon (FRA, Suzuki), 10. Tonus (SUI, Yamaha), 11. Weimer (USA, Kawasaki), 12. Martin (FRA, Honda), 13. Vongsana (FRA, Suzuki).
And here’s what matters most – King of Bercy classification after two nights: 1. Chisholm (3 pts); 2. Tomac (3); 3. Wey (9); 4. Soubeyras (12); 5. M Alessi (12); 6. Weimer (14); 7. Tonus (16); 8. Izoird (16); 9. Aranda (17); 10. Searle (18). Chisholm and Tomac are tied going into Sunday’s finale!
Notes: Both Jake Weimer (a former AMA Supercross West Regional Champion and last year’s King of Bercy (and 2011 AMA Supercross East Region Champ) Justin Barcia did not finish the main event tonight. They tangled together in a previous race – Barcia didn’t line up for the main, and Weimer retired during the main.
