Maxxis Kawasaki by LPE boss Steve James has confirmed that Cyrille Coulon will be joining fellow Frenchman Jason Clermont in the MX1 class at Hawkstone Park this weekend for round six of the Red Bull Pro Nationals.

Steve had been aiming to get former Canadian champ Teddy Maier across but delays caused by the August Bank Holiday have called for a rethink.

“It’s been hectic,” says Steve, “and I’m disappointed we won’t be bringing Teddy across for Hawkstone but Cyrille’s a great replacement and a great partner for Jason. I’m looking forward to this weekend.”


Race fans will remember Coulon from the winter’s Arenacross series when he grabbed a couple of Pro podium finishes and ended the championship in fifth.

Round six of the Red Bull Pro Nationals takes places at Hawkstone Park on August 31/September 1.

On-the-gate admission is just £13 for adults, £3 for children and £30 for a family of four. Tickets can also be booked online here before midnight on August 29. Hawkstone Park is just off the A49 near to the village of Hodnet. Postcode is SY4 4NA.
