Stewart claims victory on night two for runner-up honours.
Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia has been crowned the 2019 King of Paris Supercross, winning the opening night as Malcolm Stewart (Smartop Bullfrog Spas MCR Honda) rose to victory on night two.
Barcia charged to a 3-2-1 scorecard in Saturday’s triple crown format, comfortably defeating Vince Friese (Smartop Bullfrog Spas MCR Honda) and Joey Savatgy – who was making his debut with JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing – in the overall standings.
Home favourite Dylan Ferrandis (Monster Energy Yamalube Yamaha Star Racing) was fourth ahead of Stewart, as Australian Chad Reed (Honda) was eighth overall with a 6-7-10 results sheet.
Sunday night’s overall win belonged to Stewart following a commanding performance, the Honda rider recording 3-1-1 race results to finish second to Barcia in the King of Paris standings, which combines scores from both nights of racing.
Geico Honda’s Jeremy Martin was second on the night ahead of Barcia, while Ferrandis and Justin Hill (Smartop Bullfrog Spas MCR Honda) locked out the top five. Reed was 15th overall with 11-17 results in the opening two races, however a heavy fall in the second outing prompted him to sit out the finale.
