Supercross Paris Bercy: The “French legends” in action!
For French supercross and motocross riders, “Bercy” has always been a unique event. And all the best Frenchies will race at least one time at the most famous European Supercross. Five, ten or twenty years after their last appearance on the track, the “French legends” will be back in action on November 19th, 20th and 21st in the Palais Ominsport Paris Bercy!
Most of the French or American stars came back to Bercy as spectators after they retired, and all were celebrated each time by the passionate crowd, who always give to Bercy it’s famous and incredible atmosphere.
This year it will be different for the “French legends”, who all accept the challenge to race one more time at this prestigious event! Of course they will race only once per night, for six laps, but you will get to see in action most of the best former French champs.
Bayle, Pichon, Demaria and company!
Legendary Jean Michel Bayle will be leading the “French legends” with the number 1 plate; US Supercross Champion, twice World Champion and twice winner in Bercy, JMB is a true legend who is still considered an icon after twenty years away from MX/SX to road race. Another former double US and World MX champion will be on the track: Mickael Pichon. Whether racing Motocross, Beach races or Supermoto, “Mika” (nÂ°2) will do his first Supercross appearance in quite a while and will probably be with David Vuillemin (nÃ‚Â°934, six times winner in Bercy) who retired from professional motocross and supercross racing last year.
Also, Triple World Champion Yves Demaria (nÃ‚Â°1), double World MX Champions SÃƒÂ©bastien Tortelli (nÃ‚Â°3) and Frederic Bolley (nÃ‚Â°5), World MX Champion Jacky Vimond (nÃ‚Â°29) and Mickael Maschio (nÃ‚Â°71) will be racing as well, along with US East Regional Supercross champion Stephane Roncada (nÃ‚Â°112), multi-time French Champion Thierry Bethys (nÃ‚Â°48), FrÃƒÂ©dÃƒÂ©ric Vialle (nÃ‚Â°7), Yann Guedard (nÃ‚Â°15) and Daniel Obelisco (nÃ‚Â°26).
In total they will represent nine Bercy SX overall wins, thirteen World Motocross titles, four US Supercross titles, forty seven US Supercross wins, two US Motocross titles, one World Supercross title and no less than one hundred and fifty four Motocross Grand Prix wins!
These historical French stars will be riding all together for the first – and last – time in the history of French Motocross and Supercross, a moment that each fan must see live!
