WATCH THE 2021 FRENCH MOTOCROSS GRAND PRIX IN UNDER SIX MINUTES
At the 12th of 18 rounds at Lacapelle-Marival, with Spain and five versions of the Italian Grand Prix to follow, Jeffrey Herlings regained the red plate from Tim Gajser to win his 95th Grand Prix (between the 250 class and 450 class). It wasn’t easy for Herlings in France as Roman Febvre caught and passed him for the first moto victory and then caught and passed Jeffrey again in the second moto—this time Herlings fought back and retook the lead and win. Meanwhile in the 250 GP, current 250 World Champion Tom Vialle proved that he might well have repeated as the champ if he hadn’t missed three races with an early season injury. Vialle has won the last five GPs in a row (although one win was taken away from him for a yellow flag penalty), with seven moto wins, two seconds and one third Vialle came from out of the top ten to fourth in points. But, Vialle is 116 points out of first place, which is held by Yamaha’s Maxime Renaux. The Yamaha rider has only won three GPs (and one of them was when Vialle was penalized two spots).
