Lake Forest, CA September 14, 2009, Bidart Battles To Surprise Series Win.
French Supermoto ace Sylvain Bidart took time out from competing in the French and Spanish championship series to win the 2009 AMA Supermoto series. A model of consistency, no doubt helped by the fact that his ScorpionEXO® helmet's KwickWick® liner kept him cool in the heat of battle, Bidart took the title without actually winning a round... in fact, headed into the finals in Utah, MX racing legend Jeff Ward actually topped the points chase!
A tough DNF in the first leg at Miller Motorsports Park killed Ward's chances of winning another Supermoto title while Bidart battled with Brandon Currie down to the wire - Currie went 1-1 on the weekend to win his first ever S1 races, but Bidart ultimately took the title in something of a surprise to even the champ himself. He was almost speechless on the podium, saying little more than, "This is a dream come true!"
