BUSY WEEKEND FOR SR75 SUZUKI

BUSY WEEKEND FOR SR75 SUZUKI YIELDS PODIUMS AND WINS

Back to news

It was a busy weekend for SR75 World Team Suzuki's Charles LeFrancois, with Pro Hexis Supercross action on Saturday immediately followed by the MX JHE Event on Sunday.

The non-stop programme is typical of the all-action team, and LeFrancois started the weekend strongly, qualifying third at the second round of the Pro Hexis Supercross series. With three main events on the night, LeFrancois took a best result of third for fifth overall, but the points remain tight at the top.

After a late finish, it was an overnight drive before racing a Sunday of motocross. With his MX setup in his RM-Z450, LeFrancois raced to three moto wins and the overall victory.

Meanwhile, back in the UK, the team's amateur programme saw Sam Dyer convert three holeshots into victories on his SR75 Suzuki RM-Z250 at Bromyard.

French ace LeFrancois said afterwards, "This weekend has been great for my speed and confidence. I have been disappointed with some results since we returned from the USA and I know now I was recovering. Now I feel my speed is returning and I am happy.

"My bikes are working great and I feel fast. I am dissatisfied with fifth overall at the Pro Hexis round but I know my speed was good and I am excited for the next few weeks of racing supercross.

"I  also enjoyed my MX racing and now I am for sure feeling fitter and stronger every day. I am having fun and I thank all my team, family, sponsors and the great fans."

Team manager Geoff Walker added, "Charles has had a bit of a tough run since the USA and we have all wanted things to be just a little sharper and stronger. Charles is now returning to good form and confidence which is really cool. This guy works very, very hard and we want nothing but the ultimate success for Charles.

"A big thanks to everyone involved in what we do at all levels from the very top with Charles performing and showing more strength to our grass roots crew where we grabbed another triple win with young Sam Dyer on his RM-Z250 taking three holeshots and three victories in his Senior Class Racing at Bromyard in the South West of the UK.

"We all thank every one of our team partners and technical sponsors for their support."
