Barcia wins first night in Paris

Justin Barcia took the win in the first night of the Paris supercross when both Dylan Ferrandis and Malcom Stewart crashed in the first corner.

The first SX1 race was exciting, as Dylan Ferrandis won the first ‘sprint’ race when he passed Justin Hill during the last lap of the race; it was a spectacular move as Justin crashed when Dylan passed him to win this race.

The second one was not as good for Dylan and Justin as they both crashed at the start! Malcom Stewart won this race ahead of Justin Barcia, while Ferrandis came back fifth.

At the start of the main event, Stewart and Ferrandis went down. Vince Friese got the holeshot, followed by Jeremy Martin, Jordi Tixier, Justin Hill and Justin Barcia. Feeling more and more comfortable through the night after third and second in the earlier races, Barcia was strong in the main event and got the lead after the ninth of 22 laps. He took the win with a five seconds margin over Joey Savatgy and Justin Hill, while Martin crashed twice.

Barcia (3/2/1) won this first night, followed by Friese (5/4/4), Savatgy (2/10/2), Ferrandis (1/5/8) and Stewart (9/1/5). 

Winner of the two ‘sprint’ races in the SX2 class, Thomas Do wasn’t able to repeat this performance in the main event, but a second position behind Brian Hsu was enough to win the overall tonight.

Hsu was unbeatable in the main, winning the race ahead of Do and Jace Owen who battled until the last corner. Do (1/1/2) won the overall tonight followed by Hsu (2/3/1), Owen (4/2/3), Yannis Irsuti (3/4/6) and Lucas Imbert (5/5/7).
