PARIS (France) – The official presentation of the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations took place this morning in Paris at the emblematic building of the Eiffel Tower. The French Motorcycling Federation, in partnership with Youthstream, Monster Energy, FIM, Motoclub Angerien and Universal Events, took also the opportunity to present the French team made of Steven Frossard, Gautier Paulin and Marvin Musquin, in front of the media and the public who attended the event.
Around midday the Monster Energy Yamaha riders Steven Frossard and Gautier Paulin arrived at the Eiffel Tower and they welcomed all the media and fans who gathered together under the emblematic Parisian building. The riders dedicated some words to the French crowd and they spent some time with their fans signing some autographs and taking some pictures. The third rider Marvin Musquin, former MX2 World Champion, could not attend as he is currently based in the United States and will make his return just in time for the event.
After attending the media, the riders went to a boat anchored by the Seine together with Youthstream’s Vice-President Mr. Luigi Zompetti, the FFM President Mr. Jacques Bolle, French Team Manager Mr. Olivier Robert, Mr. Jean Pierre Mougin from the French National Olympic and Sportive Committee and Mr. Jean Marie Boissonnot Saint Jean d’Angely MC President. They all took part in a press conference, which was followed up by a beautiful cocktail.
Everybody enjoyed a lot the event, specially the riders, who admitted that they could have never imagined being the protagonist of the presentation of a relevant event such as the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations at the Eiffel Tower. In fact Paulin confessed that he had never been so close to the iron masterpiece.
The whole French Team is really confident that they can do a good performance at this 65th edition of the Monster Energy FIM MXoN and they admitted that they feel like they have many chances to take the Chamberlain Trophy home.
