Jake Weimer is the new king of Bercy!
The 30th edition of the Bercy Supercross held in the heart of Paris has seen Jake Weimer crowned ‘King of Bercy” in front of a sellout crowd for all 3 nights. Weimer powered his Kawasaki to exciting wins on Friday and Saturday night in front of fellow Americans Eli Tomac and Justin Brayton. The final night on Sunday would have the Parisian crowd on their feet in a nail biter which saw Tomac take the win in front of Weimer however his second spot was all that was needed to claim the ‘King of Bercy’ title placing him in on a historic winning list of fellow American heroes such as OMARA, JOHNSON, MCGRATH, EMIG, CARMICHAEL and the like.
The three nights here are nerve-wracking. I knew I needed to do well on the first night to have a chance at the win. Then on the second you want to continue the roll but coming to the third night I knew only I could blow it! It’s like a little championship. It is not easy. It’s really awesome to be the King of Bercy because all my heroes came and raced and won here. This is my second year in Paris and I had fun in ’11 but did not give myself much of a chance, but this time I wanted it. It is amazing to be able to get on the plane tomorrow knowing I have this achievement chalked off” commented an elated Weimer.
