Magny-Cours - France

Race resume

In 4th place, Valentin Debise made a very good start before the red flag came out. After the second start, Valentin wanted to switch off his engine, so that it would not get too hot. Valentin wanted to do the right thing and had to wait for the bike to start again when the lights turned green. A human error that could have happened to anyone. He was then hit by the other French wild card, V.Falcone, to whom the GMT94 team wishes a good recovery. Both riders came out of this accident without serious injury. However, Valentin Debise has all the symptoms of a fractured wrist, and is currently in hospital in Nevers for further tests…

Following this incident, Jules Cluzel had a great race, and took another podium, 1 second from the victory. A performance that rewards the efforts of the rider and the team since several weeks.
Starting from 10th position, Andy Verdoïa fought his way into the top ten. With his best race time in the last lap, Andy is aiming for even better than his 10th place tomorrow.

Jules Cluzel: “I haven’t had this much fun for a long time. The second that separates us from the victory, is the one I lost at the beginning of the race in the pack, but I am really enjoying this podium. I think tomorrow we can have a good race too, I’m looking forward to it.”

Andy Verdoïa: “I finished only six seconds from the win, but I was caught in a strange pace with riders trying to overtake at all costs. Tomorrow we’ll have to get out of it quickly to try and get closer to the top five, because I think I’m able to do it.

See you tomorrow at 12:30 pm for Race 2 live on Eurosport!
