Moto Concepts Fires Pourcel
According to the Moto Concepts Facebook page and Twitter, Mike Genova, team owner made comments on Pulp MX that rider Christophe Pourcel will not longer be riding for the team. Last week there was a bunch of rumors floating around that Pourcel was not happy with the bike, the team asked him to come to California to test suspension, he said no, and went home to Florida and did not return phone calls. The team tried to send him a practice bike but not sure what happened there. Then last weekend the team prepped his bike, yet CP was a no show.
The saga continues with Pourcel. Is Pourcel the new J-Law? Was the bike that bad or is Pourcel that much of perfectionist/baby that he has to have everything past perfect or he will not ride? Having a bike that a rider can race safe at pro/national speeds is important but to make your team look bad is another issue. For a rider that has so many demands and thinks he is worth so much money he should act different to his fans and the industry. So what is next for Pourcel? And will anyone in America ever give him a chance aboard their team again? The guy is very fast but is it worth the drama? Teams have been putting up with the Alessi squad for years because Mike has so much talent, will this hold water for Pourcel in the U.S.? Stay tuned!
