Jake Weimer Locks Up The King of Bercy Crown

Looking for Sunday night results from the 30th annual Supercross from Paris-Bercy? Here you go. Jake Weimer (Monster Energy Kawasaki) took two of the three main events for the 450 class to claim the King of Bercy crown for 2012, but it wasn't easy. Eli Tomac (GEICO Honda) holeshot Sunday night's main event and ran alone out front. Jake was looking good sitting in second spot, until he had a small tipover, and Justin Brayton (Toyota/JGRMX/Yamaha) moved into second, which would have given Tomac the title. Jake had enough laps remaining to reel in the Yamaha rider and make the needed pass.

It was a trio of Frenchmen chasing the Prince of Bercy title for the 250 class, and Josse Sallefranque handily nabbed the title over Valentin Teillet and Romain Berthome.

The Photo Blast will be up soon, with tons more photos from the night.

Oh-la-la.
