Winner of in Australia, the rookie Randy Krummenacher even spiced up this second Supersport 2016 race which was not lacking in spice … And it was finally our dear "Julo" who savored the victory !

"When I saw the Kawasaki at the limit behind me, I knew I had to focus only on Jacobsen. That’s what I did", reveals our" Coq Supersportif ", fine tactician, excellent finisher and formidable sprinter: his pole on Saturday was his 17th in the category !

Deprived of Proseco champagne on the podium – so we never drink alcohol in Thailand ?! -, the n ° 16 of the official team MV Agusta leaves the circuit of Buriram with 25 points as important for morale as for the championship.

"I am very happy, because this race was long and difficult", declared Jules on the evening of his 11th victory (23 podiums) in 37 WSSP races."But we fought until the last few meters and in the end we won".

Three other French riders will be watching in the Superstock 1000 category which will also start in three weeks in Aragon: Florian Marino (official Yamaha Pata team) as well as Jeremy Guarnoni and Christophe Ponsson, both entered in the Kawasaki Pedercini team (that of Sylvain Barrier in Superbike).

"Aragon test completed", posted Jeremy Sunday evening after an important series of private tests."Not easy for us, the lap times were hard to get, but I managed to have a very good run at the end of the day with the worn tires.".

Winner of the last race of the 2015 season at home – with us! – at Magny-Cours riding his R1, "Jey" admits to having "still a lot of work, but we’ll be ready to race in a few weeks !"he promises.
