Source: Electric Motion | After a long period of frustration for all the riders, the French Championship started this weekend at AURON (29 – 30 August 2020). This Championship was perfectly organised by the Moto-Club de La Gaude and the 2-day event suffered from variations in the mountain weather, between rain and cold on Saturday and bright sun on Sunday.
This first contest was the opportunity for Electric Motion to implement for the first time this year their new structure as well as the team which supervised their pilot Gaël Chatagno.
Entered in category Senior 1, riding his Epure Race 2021, Gaël aims for the title of Champion of France. Well supported by his team-mate “follower” Guillaume and coached by Christophe Bruand, he did a double trick and won these 2 days on a row.
“This weekend were the first two rounds of the French Championship in Auron. Rather difficult weather conditions on Saturday made the route selective and demanding. The team present did a superb job to allow me to ride in the best conditions and to go for the first place. It’s done with two victories! A big thank you to them for their investment.”
Concentrated, precise and combative, Gaël puts himself in the best conditions to tackle the World Championship next weekend at Isola 2000.
It should be noted that this victory is a never seen premiere: indeed, enrolled in category Senior 1 between traditional gas motorcycles, an electric motorcycle wins for the first time and demonstrated the enormous potential of the Epure range from Electric Motion.
Note the very beautiful 5th and 4th places of Martin Pochez with his Epure Comp, perfectly supported by Electric Motion’s dealer Moto West.
