Why Creusot is proof that nothing is impossible in EWCWhy Creusot is proof that nothing is impossible in EWC

08 July 2023

Amandine Creusot has explained the circumstances that led to her unexpected FIM Endurance World Championship comeback in the Dunlop Superstock Trophy category at Circuit de Spa-Fancorchamps last month.

After missing the 24 Heures Motos in April, the French rider received a late call to return to the Team 202 ranks as its fourth rider for the 24H SPA EWC Motos to kick-off what she described as a crazy week.

In a post on Facebook, Creusot wrote: “A regular Monday at work like everyone else, but this was by far the most atypical week for me of all my 24-hour races. I find out I have a spot as a back-up rider on the team with a departure to Spa at the last minute on Tuesday. Wednesday a big fall in the early afternoon puts everything in question and on Thursday my health does not allow me to ride at all. Friday I qualify and pick up the red armband from my team-mate Sofian [Lhuillier] who is sick since the beginning of the week. Friday night I’m starting a round of EWC and Monday I just had to go to work. Impossible is nothing.”

Unfortunately for Creusot and her fellow Yamaha-powered Team 202 riders Florent Parret and Gilles Minutello, their bid to finish the 24H SPA EWC Motos ended in the opening hours due to an oil filter issue.
