French Supersport Champion in 2021, and wild-card for the GMT94 team during the French round of the World Supersport Championship, Valentin Debise had a beautiful 4th place in Superpole before being hit on the starting grid in Race 1. The rider from Albi broke his left arm. After a break of six weeks, Valentin will have to go through the medical control of the FIM this Thursday morning. Valentin has already been able to ride on his training bike, and he feels in great shape.
Valentin Debise has been particularly successful in 2021. He fought for the title in each championship he competed : French SBK, French SSP, German SBK and German SSP championships. The GMT94 wished to offer a second chance to Valentin.
The rider of the #53 Yamaha R6 will have to discover the San Juan track like many other riders in the WorldSSP Championship.
Valentin Debise: “I’m delighted to be back in the World Championship for this round in Argentina. I would like to thank the GMT94 for the opportunity after my race in Magny-Cours. I feel really good, my arm is fully fit and I can’t wait to get back on the GMT94 Yamaha R6!“
Rémi Guyot: “It seemed obvious to us not to end our season with Valentin because of this incident in Magny-Cours. It was possible for him to have a good race. He had done everything he could to win the challenge in the French Championship, and he deserves to prove what he’s able to do in the WorldSSP Championship.“
See you on Friday at 11.25am (local time) for the start of FP1.
