desprey basly 24

The 24MX Tour French Championship is back in action this weekend, March 30 & 31 for the second round of the season at the Castelnau-de-Lévis track. A race that promises to be explosive on both MX1 and MX2 classes with Maxime Desprey and Mathys Boisrame leading their respective categories after winning the opening round two weeks ago in Basly.

In the MX1 class, it seems will we have another fight between the Yamaha GSM Dafy Michelin´s Maxime Desprey and Greg Aranda against the Honda SR Motoblouz duo Valentin Guillod and Kevin Horgmo. Desprey won the opening round with a convincing 1-1, followed by current champ Valentin Guillod (3-2) and Greg Aranda (2-4). But don´t forget Benoit Pautrel or Brice Maylin who also showed some great speed. At the same time, three-time MX2 champ Pierre Goupillon started with a solid seventh place on his MX1 debut.

Mathys Bosirme is back in MX2 class this year with the ambition of claiming a third crown, which was clear at Basly after winning with authority via 1-1. The Husqvarna France rider will be up against the new generation of talents such as Mathys Valin, Maxime Grau, Adrien Petit, and Benjamin Garib, all of whom took part in the opening round of the EMX250 last weekend in Spain. Valin went third overall with a moto win in his second-ever 250cc race.
