Victory at Magny-Cours !

This weekend at Magny-Cours, Lucas is clearly aiming for victory.

They are great on the R6 ".

"The layout allows for some great brawls in the race, but the grip is bad in the wet so hopefully the sun will shine this weekend. I can’t wait to ride in front of my fans and will do my best. better to win! "
