SR75 Suzuki has confirmed its 2020 Arenacross lineup with Charles Le Francois returning for another year, alongside up-and-coming Nico Dercourt.
Le Francois, who helped SR75 Suzuki win another Arenacross team championship last year, will remain RM-Z450-mounted for the 2020 campaign. The talented Frenchman will also contest a number of championships on the international stage.
He will be joined by compatriot Dercourt who will race an RM-Z250 in the hotly-contested UK indoor supercross series, and an RM-Z450 in Europe.
Le Francois said of remaining with the team for another year, "I am very happy to continue racing with the team for 2020. We had a fantastic year in 2019 and I cannot wait to get to AXUK and every race of 2020 with my new teammate, so we can go racing and make a great show for the fans. I enjoy working with the team and we have many exciting projects to look forward to with SR75 this year. Every day some adventure will await us."
Dercourt, "I could not be happier to sign for SR75 for this year. I want to work with everyone to do the best I can be. I respect this team and know that as part of this structure I can make progress with my racing. I will give everything to make good results and I cannot wait to make my debut in Arenacross UK with the team and Charles as my teammate. Thanks to Geoff [Walker - team manager] and Jerome [Hemery - HRS Suspension] for their support to make this happen."
Walker added, "We couldn’t be happier with the direction we are taking in 2020, it is exciting times and we are so lucky to have some great team sponsors and personnel involved in SR75. Bringing Nico on board simply fits with the SR75 style. He is a bit of an underdog and we have taken great pride in improving and taking every racer involved with the team to the highest level possible for them to reach. We enjoy this and we have had some great riders come through the ranks.
"To retain Charles was a must as this guy gives his all every week to improve which is all we ask. And working Jerome and HRS Suspension is a massive positive and we cannot wait to get going in Arenacross UK and the rest of our schedule."
