Sixth at the finish of the 24 Heures Motos, Tati Team Beaujolais Racing topped the Superstock category and also picked up the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy, winning €5,000 worth of prize money. The team placed ahead of Moto Ain CRT and AM Moto Racing Compétition.

Julien Enjolras, Dylan Buisson and Kevin Denis ran a flawless race at the 24 Heures Motos. After starting out 21st in the saddle of Tati Team Beaujolais Racing’s Kawasaki, they finished a superb 6th to scoop both the Superstock win and the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy. Tati Team Beaujolais Racing also shot to the top of the provisional standings of the FIM EWC World Cup and now equals the points tally of Moto Ain CRT, the Superstock winner at the Bol d’Or, the first round of the FIM EWC 2016-2017.

With Alexis Masbou, Hugo Clère and Robin Mulhauser, World Supersport rider and FIM EWC rookie, Moto Ain CRT (Yamaha) gave fresh proof of its ambition to win the FIM EWC World Cup.

Female riders are in the spotlight right now. Lucy Glöckner’s battle for the podium galvanized the end of the Bol d’Or last weekend. But she wasn’t the only woman rider to enter the fray. The all-female Girls Racing Team (Amandine Creusot, Jolanda Van Westrenen and Muriel Simorre) finished the race too, and so did Flam Racing’s female rider Margaux Wanham.

Fourth past the finish line at the Bol d’Or, Völpker NRT48 Schubert Motors by ERC galvanized the end of the race. The private BMW team’s rider Lucy Glöckner fought an epic duel with permanent team Honda Endurance Racing’s Sébastien Gimbert, who made third place by a whisker. Glöckner’s spectacular feat won the German team the EWC Dunlop Independent Trophy and €5,000 in prize money.

Racing the Bol d’Or as a two-man team on a current-day bike is quite a challenge. But when their 3rd rider withdrew after qualifying, National Motos decided to go ahead anyway with just Emeric Jonchière and Stéphane Egéa.

Endurance racing is a multi-faceted sport with extraordinary appeal. The prowess of the riders, teams, machines and tyre manufacturers all contribute to the excitement of the FIM EWC world championship, and this was amply demonstrated at the Bol d’Or.
