Back in his native country for a few days, Dylan Ferrandis had another successful weekend as he won the Marseille Supercross. But the double winner at the MX of Nations had to push hard to finally beat Cédric Soubeyras!

Marseille has a long history with Supercross, but the event enters a new era as it’s now new organizers in charge of the event. Thanks to Cédric Soubeyras and Dylan Ferrandis the fans had some great racing during two nights and Saturday night was a ‘crazy one’ with so much action on the track.

Both Dylan Ferrandis and Cédric Soubeyras were ‘the men to beat’ in Marseille and coming both from this area they had a lot of supporters in the stadium. On Friday night Soubeyras was the strongest, winning two of the three SX1 races to beat Ferrandis who was doing his first race on a 450; coming to Marseille with some parts – suspensions, CDI – after doing some testing in California, Dylan was fastest in each session/race and was ready for the show on Saturday night. Neither Dylan or Cedric got any holeshot, and both were forced to pass and block pass during the three races; the second one was really intense with a couple of block pass, but it was fair racing! After a surprising win for Charles Lefrançois in the first race, the two others were for Dylan who won the second night and the overall; he’s the new ‘King of Marseille’ less than two years after moving to the US. Second overall is Cédric Soubeyras, and third is Greg Aranda who finished the six races on the box, but never able to battle with Dylan and Cédric.

Winners each night of their heat race, both Thomas Do and Anthony Bourdon failed to win a main event. Back racing to prepare the Adac Supercross on a new bike Julien Lebeau surprised everyone on Friday, but on Saturday it was Adrien Escoffier who dominates the main event with Anthony Bourdon in second. Escoffier is the new ‘Prince of Marseille’ and confirmed to be ‘the man to beat’ in this class after winning the Pro Hexis Supercross a month ago.
