Roczen claims Paris crown

Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen had some good battles at the 39th Supercross of Paris, and finally it was Ken who lifted the ‘King of Paris’ trophy as he won all three races on Sunday. It was the first time in Paris for the Honda rider. And fellow newbie Matt Moss who won the ‘Prince of Paris’ title in the SX2 class.

Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen. battled both nights for the win: Eli won the first round on Saturday, but Ken replied by winning the three races on Sunday. It was a perfect night for him, as he didn’t make any mistakes to beat Eli in the three races. Ge won in front of Eli Tomac (2/2/2), Justin Brayton (5/3/3), Marvin Musquin (2/5/4) and Cooper Webb (4/4/5). Ken is the 2022 King of Paris and USA won the team award.

In the SX2 class, Chros Blose won the three races on Saturday but on Sunday it was his teammate Matt Moss who got great starts to win the overall classification. Blose was unfortunate with a crash at the second start and another in the main event. Second today was Jace Owen (8/2/2, followed by Brice Maylin (3/5/4) and Cullin Park (2/3/9) who lost his chances due to a crash in the last moto.
