Bercy Night 2: All Chisholm
One night to go!
Who will be the new King of Bercy? Chisholm or Tomac?
As usual the fans were more excited than ever during the second night of Bercy Supercross, fueled by Monster Energy. In the stadium and on the track the atmosphere was ‘electrical’, and the fans gave to the event his traditional and unique atmosphere, which made it different than all the other SX in the world.
Jake Weimer and Justin Barcia were the first winners tonight, as both dominate their semi final. Gregory Aranda was treated by the crowd as an hero when he won the Super Pole, for the second night in a row; he came to the American race with a strong motivation, but at the second start of this series he slides and touch the front wheel of Justin Barcia who crashed with Jake Weimer! Both retired from this race, and lost all their chances as Justin didn’t enter the main event while Jake retired at mid race with a painful knee. It’s Mike Alessi who got the holeshot and led the first laps, chased by Kyle Chisholm; Kyle came back and put some pressure on the leader who did a mistake and crashed in the tunnel! Kyle got the lead and controls the race, winning his first main event in Paris; coming back second after a consistent race, Eli Tomac is now tight with Kyle in the King of Bercy classification before the third and last night of racing. Greg Aranda won the battle for the last step of the podium, but after his win in the American race Nick Wey was a strong contender; Nick is currently third in the overall classification, six points behind Tomac and Chisholm.
