Michelin set to return to the FIM Endurance World Championship

Michelin is pleased to announce that it will be returning to the FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC) when racing resumes after the interruption forced by the Covid-19 pandemic. Its first outing will consequently be the 24 Heures Moto at Le Mans, France, at the end of August. Michelin plans to use its involvement in the FIM EWC to reaffirm its role as a leading player in motorcycle endurance racing which permits open competition between tyre brands.

Michelin’s decade of innovation and success in motorsport

In the course of the past 10 years, Michelin’s increasingly sophisticated, energy-efficient, consistent and, now, connected tyres collected more than 300 world-class victories in disciplines as varied as MotoGP, endurance racing, rallying and Formula E. 

Trial: Toni Bou back to the lead

After a tough event for him last week in Corsica, Toni Bou (Montesa Michelin) reacted this weekend in Alagna Valsesia (Italian Alps). The reigning World champion won the event and is back at the lead of the series, just one point ahead of Adam Raga (Gas Gas).

Once more the race started with a great battle between Bou and Raga, and Toni had to fight off a strong challenge from his main title rival. Leading by only two points after the first lap, Bou was able to improve his results during the next two laps of a tough event, scoring seven and then six points while Raga added nineteen and seventeen points to his scoreboard.

Winner with thirty two points while Raga scored fifty nine points, Bou is now leading his rival by one point as the series reaches his half way point. The battle for the third spot of this Italian GP only stopped in the last stage, and Albert Cabestany (Sherco Michelin) keeps one small advantage over Jeroni Fajardo (Beta Michelin) who did the best final lap…behind Bou!

Results of the event: 1.Bou (ESP, Montesa Michelin) ; 2.Raga (ESP, Gas Gas) ; 3.Cabestany (ESP, Sherco Michelin) ; 4.Fajardo (ESP, Beta Michelin) ; 5.Dabill (GBR, Beta Michelin); 6.Fujinami (JAP, Montesa Michelin) ; etc…

Championship standings: 1.Bou, 108 ; 2.Raga, 107 ; 3.Cabestany, 81 ; 4.Fujinami, 78 ; 5.Fajardo, 72 ; etc…
