Pourcel knows what to expect in 2008, so look out.

TFS is reporting in his Weekend Window that Christophe Pourcel, last weekend's Phoenix SX Lites winner, hurt his foot early in the main at Anaheim 2 and pulled out with now appears to be a fractured foot. He was checked out on site and it was confirmed, but this is pending another look at a doctor. He also hurt his hand during the week in practice.

Pourcel is returning home to France and will need to heal up and start getting ready to defend his MX2 world GP championship.
In a interview about Pourcel Thursday, Payton said, "He wanted to come over so I said we should do it like we did Pichon. That is bring him over and let him ride a couple supercross races. Let him get the feel for it, feel the stadium. Next year he will come here and he will know our team. He will know the mechanics. It won’t be new to him."
