French Star Timoteï Cez Maintains Winning Ways To Top Second Round of 2023 Junior e-Motocross Series

Villars Sous Ecot (FRANCE) 22 May 2023 - Racing in front of his home crowd for round two of the 2023 Junior e-Motocross SeriesTimoteï Cez was once again unbeatable aboard his GASGAS MC-E 5 as the young French racer won both races to extend his series lead. Second overall was fellow Frenchman Jordan Cadenel (Husqvarna) with Spaniard Adan Quesada (KTM) stepping onto the overall podium for the first time this year in third.


The deeply rutted and incredibly technical circuit of Villars sous Ecot was the venue for round two of the 2023 European Junior e-Motocross Series. Held two weeks after the successful season-opener in Spain, another full line-up of 40 youngsters made the trip to the east of France for the second round to compete at what was a new venue for the series. Setting the pace around the slightly shortened circuit in qualifying was early points leader Timoteï Cez, ahead of last year’s series runner-up, Austin Edwards (KTM) from Great Britain.

Spanish racer Quesada aboard his KTM SX-E 5 led the way early on in race one ahead of Cez and Cadenel, before Cez found a way by to take the lead on lap two. From there Cez would build up a comfortable margin and go on to take victory from Quesada in second, who secured his best race result of the series so far. Third would go to Cadenel with the top three riders well ahead of the chasing pack.

Race two was much closer at the finish with the top three riders separated by less than four seconds! Leading from the start and looking to take two wins from two races was Cez. Close behind was Cadenel and the fast-starting Edwards with both riders vying for their first race win of the year. Remaining calm at the front and spurred on by his home fans, Cez would ultimately claim his fourth straight race win of the year by the narrowest of margins ahead of Cadenel in second with Edwards in third.

With two race wins, the overall went to Cez who extends his series lead to 14 points over Cadenel. Lucas Bos (GASGAS), who placed third overall in Spain, maintains third in the standings with the top five rounded out by Camronn Gautier (KTM) in fourth and Quesada in fifth.

The 2023 European Junior e-Motocross Series now heads to Germany for the third stop of the series on the weekend of June 10-11, running alongside the Liqui Moly MXGP of Germany at the historic Teuschenthal race track.

Timoteï Cez: “It’s been another great weekend! Winning at my home race is really special but it wasn’t easy. Race one was really good as I was able to ride quite comfortably up front but in race two, it was really hard work. It was such a close race with Jordan and Austin and I gave it everything I had to take the win. So far, it’s been a great season and I’m looking forward to round three in Germany.”
