VICTORY AT HOME FOR LUCAS BOS AT OPENING ROUND OF 2024 JUNIOR E-MOTOCROSS SERIES IN FRANCE

ST JEAN D’ANGELY (France) 19 May 2024 – Lucas Bos has secured the overall win on home soil at the opening round of the 2024 Junior e-Motocross series after winning race one and finishing as runner-up in race two. Competing on a KTM SX-E 5, the young French rider put in a commanding performance all weekend on the hillsides of St Jean d’Angely at the Monster Energy MXGP of France.

The technical St Jean d’Angely circuit in France hosted the 2024 Junior e-Motocross season opener, where a near full gate of riders took to the line. Beginning with a timed practice session on Saturday morning followed by the first of two seven-minute-plus-one-lap races, eager young riders from twelve different countries took on the iconic MXGP track. It was France’s Lucas Bos who topped the timesheets for the first time over the weekend on his KTM SX-E 5, ahead of Mathis Negre and Ryan Gabriel.

 

The first race of the series provided no shortage of entertainment, with some impressive battles happening throughout. Keeping his momentum from timed practice, Lucas Bos took the lead on lap two and maintained it for the rest of the race to secure his first victory. Just behind Bos, a three-way battle for second place was ongoing between Ryan Gabriel, Alexander Bihimann, and Vitus Horseborg. Ultimately, it was Austria’s Gabriel who clinched second place on the final lap aboard his Husqvarna EE 5, with Alexander Bihimann rounding out the top three on his GASGAS MC-E 5.

Race two saw a new victor emerge as Jonas Moutin took the win over Lucas Bos, also on home soil. The French pair traded places for the duration of the race, but it was Jonas, on his KTM SX-E 5, who took the lead on the final lap, leaving Lucas in second. Germany’s Vitus Horsebog had an excellent start, going into lap one in fourth, which he managed to one-up by the finish line, going third-fastest in race two just five seconds behind Moutin.

The Junior e-Motocross series drew plenty of spectators, with the fan-favourite track suiting the enthusiastic young riders and demonstrating the impressive capability of their machines. After a thrilling opening round, the 2024 Junior e-Motocross series continues in two weeks’ time at the Liqui Moly MXGP of Germany in Teutschenthal on June 2-3. 

 

Lucas Bos: “I’m really happy to have won overall, especially after winning yesterday. I loved racing in the championship last year so to win now is amazing. Thank you to my family and my sponsors for helping me get here, I can’t wait for the next races.”
