With two of the worlds finest Frenchman set to whip the home crowd into a frenzy which normally happens at Saint Jean d’Angely, the weekend could throw up a surprise or two.
Is it possible for Gautier Paulin or Romain Febvre onboard their Monster Energy Wilvo Yamahas pull a shocker in France?

“I am feeling great going into the French Grand Prix in Saint Jean d’Angely. There is always an awesome crowd and very warm welcome so I can’t wait to go there. The goal is always the same, to be at my best and ride my best. When I say ride my best, it means to have perfect timing and technique. I look forward to seeing the fans and hear them cheering from the side of the track. In my opinion, France has the best crowd in the world. I can’t wait to be there.”

“I’m excited to race in France. It’s a home GP and that is always something very special, especially with the French fans and crowd. It has been a tough start to the year for me but I am ready now to go again and to get my feeling back during the race. My foot is feeling good, so I am rebuilding my confidence in it, and I really like the track at Saint Jean, it is really fast with a lot of hills and some big jumps. When the dirt is prepared well, it is normally pretty good.”
