Benoit Paturel is still searching for a deal to compete in the FIM Motocross World Championship next year, but multiple doors continue to close. The latest deal that he was chasing up, a switch to an alternative Yamaha team in MXGP, has also slipped through his grasp.
Whilst the Swiss Grand Prix winner is in limbo, he has hopped onto a Bud Racing Kawasaki and a supercross track. Paturel will pilot a 250F at the upcoming Paris supercross, as well as a round of the French series. The SX2 division is where he'll shoot for glory. How good can he be in a stadium? Well, this video of him training may help you decide.
