SR75 Suzuki and Charles Lefrançois cap off an incredible day with a podium at Supercross de La Tremblade! Charles felt comfortable on his Suzuki RM-Z450 throughout the timed practice and qualifying sessions, posting the 3rd fastest time of the day. After an amazing holeshot in the main event and leading the race for a few laps, Charles settled into a rhythm of consistently fast lap times and crossed the line in a fantastic 3rd place!
With the support of his team, including Team Owner, Geoff Walker, who travelled out from the UK especially for the race, Charles looked super confident all day and during the evenings racing. In the semi-final he was able to work the track and play with the bike and in this race he looked like he had taken a big step in confidence, finishing in P3 again.
The main event was an emotional rollercoaster for the team, with Charles leading for a couple of laps! After just missing the best line in the whoops for a few laps he dropped in to 3rd, but nailing his lines got him back up to the leaders pace, seeing Charles race away from the pack and riding in a class of his own. The P3 podium in the main was really emotional for Charles and the team as this was a massive step in confidence and progress!
Both the SR75 team and Charles are over the moon with this brilliant result and would like to thank all of the team partners and sponsors for all their amazing support. The team are already looking forward to the next race, where Charles will aim to continue his excellent podium form.
Team Owner, Geoff Walker, commented, “It was an absolutely unbelievable feeling to witness Charles riding at this superb level, i’m totally overwhelmed to have been trackside to give him the support to achieve this fantastic result. This really means a lot to myself and the team.”
Charles Lefrançois, added, “I’m so excited to be back on the podium and deliver this great result for Geoff and the team, i felt really good on my RM-Z450 and it was so much fun to be racing at the front of the pack with so many fans watching! I can’t wait for the next race!”
