Brayton King of Bercy

Cycle News Staff | November 2, 2009

After the first two nights of the three-night event, it looked as though it was going to be James Stewart in a walk, but a turn of events on night three would see JGR Yamaha’s Justin Brayton taking the overall victory while Stewart lay in the first aid room with suspected food poisoning.

Stewart’s new L&M Yamaha teammate, Josh Hill, starred in Sunday night’s main event, taking the holeshot and running away with the lead all the way to the checkered flag. Stewart’s dominance in the first two nights still awarded him second overall in the end ahead of Gregory Aranda who rounded out the podium. French rider Marvin Musquin topped the overall on night three – much to his home crowd’s delight – and he would have been on the overall podium for the weekend had it not been for a mechanical problem on Friday night. Musquin missed third place by one point, giving him fourth for the event.
