15 November 2010 Gregory Aranda EU Supercross champion

Team Rockstar Bud Racing Kawasaki had a successful weekend, as Gregory Aranda claimed in Genoa (Italy) the 2010 European Supercross title.
After a disappointing GP campaign due to injuries, Gregory Aranda prepared the supercross season with dedication and entered the European championship with a strong motivation. Winner of the opening round in Marseille and second last week in Milano, he grabbed the title thanks to a sixth position during the final round in Genoa.

Marseille was the most successful event for Gregory, who won three of the four heats and got the leadership of the series. In Milano a huge public visiting the EICMA show came to watch the race, and Greg shares the wins with his countryman Cedric Soubeyras who was his main rival for the title before the final round. But Soubeyras didn’t attend Genoa, where Greg secured his title – the last one was the 2004 Cadet 85cc French on a KX Kawasaki – with a ninth and a third position in the last two races of the series.

Next weekend the 21 years old Frenchman from Nîmes continues his Supercross season, and will enter the Paris Bercy Supercross.

Gregory Aranda: “This title is a nice reward for me and the team, as our season was not too successful with several injuries. Last year I missed this European title as I didn’t enter all the rounds, and it was one of our goals this time. The first round in Marseille was almost perfect for me, and then we came in Milan where the track was not enough selective; it was more a motocross race than a supercross, and many riders crashed on the wet layout. The track in Genoa was much better, but unfortunately I crashed in the first race; I can’t practice Supercross at the moment as it’s raining in South of France, and I had arm pump during the first heat when I was second behind Kevin Windham. The last race was better with a third position, but I’m disappointed with this results; I posted the second fastest lap in qualifying, then won my semi final and was expecting podiums. I’m looking forward to my next event which will be Bercy.”
