The FIM Motocross World Championship pulls hard on the brakes this weekend with the Grand Prix of Pays de Montbeliard in southern France and Monster Energy Yamaha’s Romain Febvre will return to a happy hunting ground. It was at the hilly Villas sous Ecot circuit in 2015 that the 24 year old wowed his growing legion of fans by clasping his maiden MXGP victory on the way to the title that year.
Febvre lands on French soil for a second home round of the series in 2017 and the nineteenth and final round of the current campaign. Unlike some of his peers at the very front of the fastest off-road motorcycle sport, Romain is not fussy or choosy about his headwear when on the track. #461 does however indulge in a little creativity with his personal logo and it is something the many fans expected to find a slot around the steep Villars setting this weekend will know about and appreciate.
