French Elite Championship Injury for Quentin, Top 8 for Anthony!

Since a few weeks Quentin Prugnières enjoyed the podium celebrations, but this weekend at Romagne he missed the opportunity to reach another one as he broke his collarbone during the practice session. Eighth in the MX1 class, Anthony Bourdon is currently seventh in the standings.

It’s a new layout that the riders discovered this weekend, but Quentin didn’t really had time to enjoy it as he was surprised by the soft ground and crashed pretty hard during the first practice session. The first exams at the hospital revealed a broken collarbone, which will will forced him to rest during a few weeks. Anthony Bourdon was the single team representative and with a ninth gate pick he start the first race mid pack; back in eighth position on the finish line he had a similar race in the second moto, gaining one position during the last lap when he passed the reigning champion. Eighth overall he is currently seventh in the standing before the next round (Vesoul on April 23rd), and four more rounds are on the schedule.

Anthony Bourdon: “For sure if I could get better starts my races would be easier, as on this track it was not easy to pass with soft ground sections before the jumps. Apart this It was a real motocross track, with good ground and many ruts. In the first moto I lost time to pass David Herbreteau even if I was faster, for sure if you start in front you take another rhythm. I know that I also need to improve my speed to get better results, I have to work this points in the coming weeks.”
