We ran into Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki's newest foreign recruit this week, and had a chance to watch him run through a training day. Arnaud Tonus is the most recent rider to make the jump over here from the GP circuit, and he's also one of the new riders we're really looking forward to seeing in action next season. With just four weeks of Supercross riding under his belt, he's already looking like he's making a smooth transition.

Oh, in case you're wondering? While he is Swiss, his English skills are much better than ours.

One of the bigger changes on the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki equipment for this coming season? The chassis, which has the adjustable height pegs, and revised spars at the rear of the frame.

Arnaud is matched up with mechanic Jon Primo, another GP convert who came over to the U.S with Marvin Musquin.

You'll also see a carbon disc cover on the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki bikes this season.

At speed through the whoops at Milestone. Thanksgiving this week? Not for himself and Jon Primo. They'll be maintaining their regular program, and out testing.

Arnaud's trainer here is Yannig Kervella (in the blue shirt), who was working with Marvin Musquin when he won two world titles. He also helped out Frederic Bolley during another two championship title runs.
