Cedric Soubeyras wins the second round of the MX3 World Championship with clear French dominance

We give a quick review of the competitions that were left in the inkwell last week, taking advantage of the fact that this has been weaker. The first one we bring is the second quote from MX3 World Championship that took place in the French town of Castelnau de Lévis. Several riders in the MX1 and MX2 categories, including Jonathan Barragan, they met in this race to complete their training for the World Cup.

If in the first race, the Dutch arena brought the Belgian experts to the top of the podium, the French track led to the victory of the local drivers who prevailed in both races. Cedric Soubeyras, from MX1, took the victory followed by his compatriot and partner in the same category Gregory aranda. Third was Spanish Jonathan Barragan.

Gregory aranda

In the first sleeve, Cedric Soubeyras, who had achieved the best time, had a nice fight during the first two corners with the Portuguese Rui Gonçcalves but then the pace of the French was simply unattainable for the rest. Little by little, the chasing group caught up with the Honda rider, unable to maintain the advantage.

It didn't take long for me to be overtaken by Jonathan Barragan and for the french Gregory aranda, which was also about to snatch the second position from the Spanish although in the end he had to settle for third place. Joan Cros finished fourteenth, Txomin Arana twenty-second and Ramón Brucart twenty-third.

Jonathan Barragan

In the second heat the weather got worse, and a lot. The wind and rain made an appearance. This time the fastest at the start was Gregory aranda that he had a nice fight with Gunter Schmidinger although as in the first round, after a few minutes in which they were marked closely, again the local pilot had more rhythm and escaped until he saw the checkered flag.

Cedric Soubeyras In this heat he did not make a good start and spent a good part of the race coming back, although his effort was rewarded as he managed to reach second position. Jonathan Barragan this time he had to settle for third place after even fighting for second place with the Frenchman although in the end he could not overcome it. The rest of the Spaniards were in twentieth position (Txomin Arana), twenty-second (Ramón Brucart) and Joan Cros had to retire.
