Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki have shored up their line-up and are targeting the Superstock win. Alexis Masbou will join Hugo Clère and Louis Rossi to ride the Suzuki #72.
Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki will have an impressive line-up in place right from the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans this April. Hugo Clère and Louis Rossi, who earned Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki the FIM Superstock World Cup runner-up spot last season, will partner with Alexis Masbou. The three Frenchmen – all national championship riders – have serious Endurance racing credentials.
Hugo Clère, the 2016 French Supersport champion, has been honing his Endurance racing skills since 2013. He rode for 3D Endurance, Yamaha Viltaïs and Moto Ain before joining Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki.
Louis Rossi, a former Moto2 racer, has been a permanent fixture in the Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki line-up since the 24 Heures Motos in 2018.
Alexis Masbou, a former Moto3 racer who made his maiden appearance in Endurance with Moto Ain in 2018, now completes the line-up.
The three French racers know each other well and make up a team with every chance of being front runners. Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki won the 2014 FIM Superstock World Cup and are targeting a fresh win in the category.
