It’s a kind of reward that Stephane Dasse offered to Brian Moreau when he offer the 16 years old French kid to race his first ever official race in the USA soil for the famous Monster energy cup in Las Vegas. For his first race, the BUD racing Monster Kawasaki rider showed a good speed and adaptation to the US life.
The Monster cup format is very different from the races we are used to do in Europe, and Brian learned a lot this weekend among the best Amateur 250 All star American riders. With one free practice and two qualifying sessions during the afternoon and two 6 laps races during the night show. During the afternoon, Brian was at the top for the time practice and posted the fastest qualifying time during the two session combined that will allow Brian to enter in pole position for the first race of the night.
From his pole position on the gate Brian got a mid pack start in the first race but fight hard all moto along to come back to 4th position. He got a much better start for the second race and was 3rd but Brian did not get a good rhythm and became too tight on the bike, he battle during all the race to stay on the podium position but got passed and finally finished 4th again in the second race, giving a 4/4 result for the first appearance at the Monster cup. It was a very good experience during this week-end but also during the week prior to the race as Brian could practice with the best Amateur American riders and some pro Stars like Marvin Musquin, Adam Cianciarulo, Tyler Bowers, Malcolm Stewart…
Thank you very much to all the Team sponsors who support us, it’s very important to have you on board !
Brian Moreau: “It was a great weekend for me, I posted the fastest lap times in my class during the qualifying and finished so close to the podium for my first race in the USA, I really enjoyed the life, people and the country also. It was a good experience and will help me for the future.”
