The hilly St Jean D’Angely track had a real mix of weather over the course of the weekend, but that couldn’t stop a determined Mathys Boisrame from winning his third overall of the EMX250 championship and taking hold of the series’ red plate. After he won his fourth race of the year on board his Team Assomotor CRF250R, he fought through the mud to take the overall and now leads the series by 13 points.

For Mathys Boisrame it was all smiles as not only did the French rider win the overall with one-four race results, he also took the lead of the EMX250 championship and the red plate that goes along with it. After getting a great start and checking out for a commanding win in race one on a hard-pack St Jean D’Angely track, he came though the field to finish fourth in pretty muddy conditions in race two, which was good enough to take the overall. It was also good enough to take the red plate by 13 points as the championship moves past the halfway point. Mathys has been in an impressive run of form since the first round, and is now a worthy leader of this prestigious championship and will look to continue this run at the sandy Ottobiano track next weekend.

Steven Clarke also looked fast all weekend, but was one of a number of riders caught up in first lap crashes.  This meant he could only get up to 16th in race one, but the British rider showed his real potential by battling for the lead in the second moto, ending up with his third top two finish in four races. He is also closing up on third place in championship series with plenty of races still to go.

After two hot weekends in a row, the next round for this series is at the Italian sand track of Ottobiano where brutal temperatures greeted the riders last year around. With more of the same forecast next weekend, this season of the European 250 motocross championship is really testing both man and machine.

I am very happy because I won my home GP and I have the red plate. The first race was great as I had a good start and I had a really good feeling with the track. The second race was very muddy so it was a bit more difficult, especially off the start but I was able to finish fourth and that was enough to take the overall victory. It was a very special weekend for me, my team, my family and all my supporters who came to see me ride. I now look forward to racing in Italy and I can’t wait to see how the red plate looks on my CRF250R!

It is great to be walking away from this event, knowing that we have a red plate holder in the ultra-competitive EMX250 Championship. To see Mathys Boisrame on board his CRF250R holeshot and win race one from start to finish was proof of exactly what the bike was designed to do. The challenge of the deep mud for race two didn’t prove to be a problem either, as Steven Clarke brought his CRF250R home in a close second.
Really though, the performance of Mathys really impressed me; to do this in front of his crowd with all the pressure that comes with that is really great. With that overall, we have now won four out of the six of the EMX250 rounds and six out of 12 races, a strong showing for the CRF indeed.
