The Paris Supercross remains the most prestigious event at the end of season, and once more team Ship To Cycle Honda Motoblouz SR had a good position in the Paris La Defense Arena. With two podiums for Charles Lefrançois in the SX Tour and a fifth overall for Cullin Park in the International event, our riders had a great weekend!
For it’s 40th edition the Paris Supercross offered to the riders and XXL track in this superb stadium, and as always the fans were numerous to cheer their heroes and put a great atmosphere in the area.
First race each night, the French SX Tour was a great one for Charles Lefrançois who enjoyed twice the podium ceremony; third on Saturday and again third on Sunday, Charles will now defend his second position in the standings at Lyon in two weeks’ time. After this ‘warm up’ Charles entered the three heats of the International class, against some top US riders; seventh on Saturday, he had a crash on Sunday during the second race and finished ninth overall.
As he did last year the team supported American Cullin Park in the SX2 class. Cullin started the weekend with a third place in the first race, to finish fifth overall on Saturday only two points from the podium. He had another good start on Sunday, but in the second heat another rider that he just passed made a bad move and Cullin lost two positions in that crash. Fourth of the overall on Sunday, he finishes fifth at the ‘Prince of Paris’ classification.
Now the team will focus on the Sand races, with the next stop in two weeks time at Hossegor.
Josse Sallefranque: “We are happy to have been once more involved in this major event, which gives a great exposure to the team and allows us to met our partners in a good situation. On the sport side we’re also happy to get good results with two podiums for Charles in the SX Tour and a fifth overall for Cullin Park who did good races and ends his weekend with a fourth position in the main event. Paris was a mix of good results and nice meetings, unfortunately Justin Brayton who was also with us for this race got injured in the first practice session.”
