Double win for BUD Racing at the French Elite

Everyone really didn’t enjoy the wet weather this Sunday in Normandy, for the penultimate round of the French Elite, but both Quentin Prugnières and Anthony Bourdon will keep good memories as they both won their class!

June 18th will remain an historic date for Team Bud Racing Kawasaki, as their two riders won their class at Rauville la Place where once more we had some rain for this round of the Elite. That wasn’t such a problem for Quentin and Anthony, who got top three results in all their motos to win the overall in the MX1 & MX2 class.

Second of his group in the timed practice session just one tenth of a second behind the reigning champion, Quentin didn’t get a great start in the first race as he was outside the top ten after a few corners. Back in fourth position after four laps he rode carefully and avoid any mistake to finish second of this moto; his second start was much better, and once more he did a clever race to finish again in second position and win the overall.

Second of the MX1 timed practice period on a track where he got good results in the past, Anthony Bourdon got two great starts and did both races in front of the pack; in the first race he made a mistake and lost the second position, but he finished both races in third place to win the overall and to come back in fifth position at the MX1 championship.

Quentin Prugnières:It was tough races on a wet track with not so many lines, so it was difficult to pass. I fought as best as I could, I could avoid big mistakes and stay on my wheels to get a win. That’s really motivating for the rest of season. It’s my first overall win in MX2, so I am happy”.

Anthony Bourdon: “It’s my first win on a 450, on a track that has often been succesful for me. Today it was important to avoid mistakes on this track, I like riding in the wet and I did it, I’m really happy with this win.”
