The Bercy Supercross is and has always been the biggest Supercross in Europe and this year they have some nice changes to make it even better. First of course the players will make this one of the best Bercy Supercross evens in years.

Held on 8, 9 & 10 November at the magnificent Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy and with names like past and present Team USA riders Justin Barcia , Trey Canard, Andrew Short, plus former World MX2 Champion and current West Coast Lites SX Champ Ken Roczen, Frenchmen Gautier Paulin , Jordi Tixier , Soubeyras , Izoird and Aranda, all be going for the prize of King of Bercy.

Can King Kenny beat home the Americans? Or will Paulin pull of the shock of the century and take victory in his home race.

The other big news will be the ” Joker’s lane” , sponsored by Honda , a concept imported directly from the Monster Cup in Las Vegas.

What is it ? On a segment of the track, adjacent to the main track, where each rider must take a detour once during the race (the detour route of the Honda Joker ‘s Lane , decorated with  a sandbox will be more difficult, and longer than two or three seconds from the normal path). Thus , a pilot stumbling over an opponent he feels is slower may consider passing by rushing into the Jokers Lane.

However, many unknowns can disrupt such a plan, as the fact that one or more other competitors slip into the gap or the risk of making a mistake in the sandbox.

The top drivers will obviously have many other places to make a difference , for example in the long series of whoops at the exit of the famous corridors, the large central triple or in highly technical line returning into the “tunnel” .

Saturday is already sold out and Friday and Sunday are selling fast, so get in while you can for the biggest Supercross show in Europe.
