Weimer Again In Bercy Supercross

Cycle News Staff | November 10, 2012

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer won for a second straight night during the three-night Bercy Supercross, the American again beating countrymen Eli Tomac and Justin Brayton in the French race.

The win puts Weimer in front of Tomac by two points heading into tomorrow night’s finale to see who will be crowned the Kind of Bercy.

Weimer was nearly perfect on the night. He won his heat race and he won the main event with his only miscue coming in his Superpole session when he crashed in the last corner of his flying lap. Tomac won the session ahead of Brayton and Frenchman Christophe Pourcel.

In the main event, Weimer won the battle of the Americans, nabbing the holeshot and leading for the duration. Tomac ended up just a second behind after getting a bad start in the 15 lapper. Second at the start, Brayton finished third, followed by Chisholm, C├ędric Soubeyras and Cyrille Coulon. Pourcel, meanwhile, crashed in the whoops and pulled out of the race
