The fans had to wait the last laps of the last main event tonight, to know who will be the new King of Bercy. It’s finally Jake Weimer who won this 30th edition of the Paris Bercy Supercross ‘fueled by Monster Energy’ and the Kawasaki factory rider led his countrymen on the podium as Eli Tomac and Justin Brayton finished second and third.
Second in the main event behind Tomac during most of the race, and nearly sure to be the new King of Bercy after his wins on Friday and Saturday as he had a strong lead over Justin Brayton, Weimer put some drama in the race when he slides and crashed with four laps to go! He was third when he was back in the race, and at this moment lost the King of Bercy title; chasing back Brayton, he was back in second position in the penultimate lap to be crowned King of Bercy.
“The three nights here are nerve-wracking. I knew I needed to do well on the first night to have a chance at the win. Then on the second you want to continue the roll but coming to the third night I knew only I could blow it! It’s like a little championship. It is not easy. It’s really awesome to be the King of Bercy because all my heroes came and raced and won here. This is my second year in Paris and I had fun in ’11 but did not give myself much of a chance, but this time I wanted it. It is amazing to be able to get on the plane tomorrow knowing I have this achievement chalked off,” said a delighted Weimer on the podium. It was an American podium with Eli Tomac – winner today of the main event – in second position and Justin Brayton – third of the three nights – in third position; Cedric Soubeyras was the best ‘non American rider’ with a fourth overall, after three consistent nights and the retirement of Kyle Chisholm who suffered a leg injury. Christophe Pourcel didn’t enter this third night, as the French champion underwent surgery after his crash on Saturday.
Valentin Teillet won the 250 races today, but it was not enough to be crowned ‘Prince of Bercy as he crashed on the previous days. It’s Josse Sallefranque who is the new Prince, after regular and consistent races.
