Hossegor is a familiar venue for Brian Moreau, as he is based with his team Bud Racing Monster Kawasaki in this city and this year again he won the round of the Beach Race series for his last race of the season.
Motocross, Supercross and beach races, Brian Moreau is an eclectic rider! After the MX season and two Supercross experiences, he was involved in the fourth round of the Beach race series aboard the same 250 KXF Bud racing. The Bud technicians just put a bigger tank to have a minimum of pit stops, and changed the transmission for this one hour and a half race. Brian took a good start on the beach, but during the first lap he crashed when he went on a soft sandy section losing a couple of seconds and some positions. Coming back second after a few laps he later joined the race leader and passed him before mid race. As his main rival run out of fuel the second part of the race was easier for Brian who controlled the pack to win the race thirty-seven seconds ahead of his closest opponent. It was the last race of the season for team Bud Racing, who will now prepare the MX2 World Championship as Brian Moreau and Brian Hsu will enter the first GP in Argentina on March 10th.
Brian Moreau: “It’s great to win here in Hossegor where the team is based, and also great to win this race for the second year in a row. At the beginning of the race the track was flat and fast, it wasn’t easy to make the difference but later it was rougher and better for me. During the first hour the weather was OK, but then we had a shower and I had to stop in the pits to take new goggles. I came here without any specific preparation, as I did a break after the season but now we won’t stop working and training to prepare next season.”
