Langston’s the world’s hottest rider right now and McGrath put the Bercy SX on the map - so the season’s last great supercross event should go off!
CORONA, Calif., (Nov. 9, 2007) – Monster Energy will be well- represented this weekend at the 25th annual Bercy Supercross as two- time champion Grant Langston, fresh off his Vegas U.S. Open win, gets set to make it three titles in front of a raucous crowd at Paris’ Palais-Omnisport (Nov. 9-11).
“I’ve been fortunate to win Bercy twice and those wins are some of the best highlights of my international racing career,” said Langston. “This year’s race should be intense. Winning Bercy will allow someone to carry that added momentum into the Anaheim supercross opener in January.” Note: Langston will be part of the “Rest of the World” team, competing for the team title versus teams representing the United States and France.
And representing that United States team will be none other than Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath, the racer who probably did the most to help elevate the popularity of the long-running Paris supercross event.
“Bercy’s always a blast,” said McGrath. “I’ve got some great memories from racing that event and I’m looking forward to coming back this weekend. The fans there are nuts and the event’s definitely got its place in history with the sport of supercross.”
In addition, Monster Energy-backed Sebastien Pourcel (Kawasaki/GPKR) will contest the race for the French team.
