2019 Paris Supercross Preview

Are you ready for SUPERCROSS!?!? Well, it's not A1 but the Supercross de Paris is the biggest off-season race in Europe, and the first chance to see some top American racers battle it out.

2019 Paris Supercross Preview

 

We've already seen the entry list for the Paris Supercross, and we know that Zach Osborne who is still on that list, isn't going to make it because of kidney stones. But, other than that, the field of riders looks pretty good for both classes. Let's take a look at how these guys are prepping for this weekend's race.

Dylan Ferrandis


Last year in his home country, Dylan had a great night of racing coming home with second overall in the hunt for the King of Paris crown. He knows how to whip that 450 around and we expect to see him coming out swinging. 


Jeremy Martin

We are super stoked to see JMart racing again, again. Monster Energy Cup showed that he's ready to ride and while he might not be in full form, any sort of racing is key to getting back to his winning ways. 

Justin Hill

Justin Hill is now a member of the SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts Honda team and from the looks of things, he's getting along pretty well with his new bike.

Justin Barcia

A former King of Bercy, Barcia is regular at the French SX. But this year, it seems that he's having some issues getting comfortable on the all new 2020 Yamaha YZ450F. His MEC didn't go how he wanted but it looks like he's expecting a better result in Paris, and even better result come A1. 

Gaetan Le Hir

Gaetan is a former French National Junior SX Champion and has won motos at Bercy in the past. It is cool to see the European SX tracks!

Jordi Tixier

We're glad to see that Jordi is fully recovered from his crash at the MEC. He was a solid sixth place overall last year in front of his home town crowd. 

Jace Owen

Can the Prince repeat the feat? Winning the Prince of Paris last year (SX2 class), Jace is also coming off a victorious Kicker Arenacross season where he's shown that he's got the multiple, short-race format down. 

Mitchell Harrison

Spending most of the year on the MXGP circuit in the MX2 class, Mitch has shown some serious speed at Supercross as well. Recently he's been practicing in SoCal and he looks on par with the other pros at the track. 

Darian Sanayei

Darian has also been grinding it out in the MX2 class of the MXGP series, but based on some of his recent posts, he might be a serious threat at Supercross, too!
