SX Tour & Prince of Paris 2017 champion Yannis IRSUTI to race SX season

Team BUD Racing Monster energy Kawasaki is very happy to announce that the 2017 SX Tour & Prince of Paris champion Yannis IRSUTI will join the team for the full European Supercross season.

Yannis will race entirely the 2 most famous Supercross series in Europe and also the biggest Euro SX international races like Paris, Geneva…. Winner of the SX Tour title & Prince of Paris in 2017, Yannis will fight to keep his title and represent the Team brightly during the SX events. One of the series who will be competed by Yannis will be fully TV scheduled (Hexis cup SX) and every events will be on TV with good coverage.

As the MXGP series and the French Elite Motocross championships only finish end of September, it’s good for the Team to have a SX only rider to represent us during the full Supercross Euro championships who start middle of June in the big Rugby stadium of Clermont Ferrand (France) and who will continue through the year to finish in December with Geneva SX. Later in the season and after the MX series will be finished, Brian Moreau will join Yannis in SX for Paris, Geneva and few selected races.

A podium result for a come back

Team Monster energy Bud Racing Kawasaki was in Tours this weekend, involved in the last round of the PRO Hexis Supercross. Alongside Brian Moreau who already race a SX in Montpellier, the team was pleased to line up Benoit Paturel, who was a few years younger with this come back with the Bud boys! Racing the winter SX with the team, the #5 in the last World MX2 was also back in Supercross with success as he ends his night on the third step of the podium, tight in the points with Brian!

The team had a very good day in Tours, for an event considered for them as a good training before the Paris SX as none of the riders raced the previous rounds of this series. Moving to SX after a long MX season both Brian and Benoit need to practice and race, and there was no better meeting than this one with three heats in each class. Both riders felt more comfortable through the night, and in the third and last heat Ben and Brian were able to fight for the podium with the stronger French SX riders.

Fourth in the timed practice period, Brian got his best result in the first race, as he didn’t do any mistake while many riders crashed; fifth in the first lap, Brian got a great second position in this heat. Sixth and fifth in the other races, the youngest rider of the class finished fourth overall, with the same points as Ben. Fifth in the practice session, Benoit was faster each time he went on the track; even if didn’t do any Supercross since Lyon 2014 (an event that he won on a Bud Kawasaki!) Ben was fighting in the top three of all the races but twice made a little mistake. Sixth and fifth, he didn’t get a good start in the last race (7th) but came back third right behind the winner! Third overall, Benoit will be in two weeks’ time in Paris, where Bud Racing may line up one extra riders alongside Ben and Brian.

Benoit Paturel: “I didn’t race any SX since four years, and just ride a few times since my injury before coming here but everything wen well and I felt more and more comfortable, which is very good for Paris SX. It was a great experience as I need to ride to keep my level, and thanks to Bud Racing I can enjoy racing some Supercross. I’ve fun, mentally it’s good to be back racing and this podium is a nice reward for all of us.”

Brian Moreau: “It was a good evening, for my second SX this year. In the first race I was lucky as many riders crashed, and I felt better and faster in each race as I didn’t suffer arm pumped. In the third race we had a nice battle, and it was great to finish so close from the leader; it’s cool to see that more I ride, better I am in Supercross.”

TEAM KAWASAKI BUD RACING / DASSY EUROPE: Une collaboration qui s’inscrit sur le long terme

Comment est née l’idée de ce partenariat ?

Fabrice DUFRESNE, marketing manager Team KAWASAKI BUD RACING :

Je dois avouer que nous avions des à priori sur les gammes textile de travail… Mais depuis quelques années, les marques du secteur ont fait des efforts considérables aussi bien en terme de design, finition et confort. Nos mécaniciens ont un métier très difficile et ils affrontent des conditions météo parfois extrêmes. Il était indispensable de leur procurer les meilleurs vêtements de travail sur le marché. Une marque et une seule s’est imposée à nos yeux réunissant tous ces critères : DASSY. Nous avons alors fait la connaissance de Valérie VLIEGHE qui a rapidement adhéré à notre proposition !

Benoît  GRAUBY / Motoriste Team KAWASAKI BUD RACING :

Je rejoins à 100% Fabrice DUFRESNE. Pour nous qui sommes dehors une grande partie de la journée, autant par grand froid qu’en période de canicule, il nous fallait une gamme complète couvrant toutes les saisons. DASSY distribue des textiles pour toutes les températures, été comme hiver. Sincèrement, nous sommes très enchantés de ces produits et nous n’avons pas l’intention d’en changer ! Notre travail manuel sollicitant beaucoup les vêtements, il nous fallait de plus des textiles robustes. Les vêtements DASSY remplissent parfaitement cette mission !

Quelles sont les valeurs communes partagées par le team KAWASAKI BUD RACING et DASSY ?

FD : Le point fondamental est le travail dans un bon état d’esprit. Nous partageons avec DASSY cette valeur d’esprit d’équipe d’autant que nous avons eu l’occasion de rencontrer également Nicolas YERNAUX, le distributeur DASSY pour la France ( PBV ) avec qui nous entretenons de très bonnes relations.. Ensuite, dans chaque défi entrepreneurial, il faut une dose de passion et de dépassement de soi. Nous sommes comme DASSY dans un environnement très compétitif, autre point commun avec DASSY. Il faut de surcroit tous les jours chercher à améliorer nos performances, comme DASSY qui réponds perpétuellement aux attentes de ses clients. Nous représentons un constructeur réputé partout en Europe et aux USA. Nos tenues doivent être irréprochables, avec DASSY nous ne pouvions rêver mieux en terme de présentation, finition et fonctionnalité !

Quels sont les produits DASSY utilisés par le team KAWASAKI BUD RACING ?

BG : Pour le bas, nous utilisons le pantalon Stark et le bermuda Smith. Nous les menons à rude épreuve et pourtant ils tiennent bons ! Ils sont très résistants et tiennent très, bien lavage après lavage. Pour finir, nous utilisons le bonnet Odin, le polo Leon irréprochable, enfin j’ai gardé le meilleur pour la fin ( ! ), la Softshell Gravity. C’est très simple, je suis mécanicien en compétition depuis 10 ans, je n’ai jamais porté une veste d’aussi bonne qualité. Elle est très chaude, technique et très bien finie. C’est incroyable le nombre de tissus différents qu’il y a sur ce produit qui est pour moi pure Premium !

Comment s’exprime ce partenariat ?

FD : Tous nos partenariats s’inscrivent sur la durée. Avec DASSY, nous entamons notre troisième année de collaboration. Régulièrement, nous invitons des clients revendeurs DASSY Français par l’intermédiaire de PBV. Par ailleurs, le logo DASSY figure en bonne place sur nos principaux supports de communication !  J’espère que nous porterons haut les couleurs de notre partenaire et obtenir pour eux de nouveaux succès à l’échelon Européen ! ( nous sommes vice champion d’Europe 250cc 2016 ). Enfin, je profite de l’occasion qui nous est donnée pour remercier une nouvelle fois vivement Valérie pour la confiance qu’elle nous témoigne depuis 3 ans. Qu’elle en soit ici vivement remerciée !
