GSM Dafy Michelin Yamaha has announced its four-rider line-up to compete in the 2022 FIM World Supercross Championship (WSX), with Thomas Ramette and Anthony Bourdon to race on 450s and Maxime Desprey and Carson Brown contesting SX2.

Ramette holds multiple French and UK SX1 titles, while Bourdon was the MX2 champion in France two years ago.

Desprey also has French national championships to his credit, winning last season’s MX1 and SX1 crowns. Brown competed in 2022 250SX West in the US, finishing 11th in the championship standings. His best result came at Anaheim 3 where he crossed the line fifth in the main event.

“Our riders and team are well known in the inner motocross and supercross circles here in France, and now have a chance to truly stand out on a global stage thanks to the FIM World Supercross Championship,” said GSM Dafy Michelin Yamaha owner Serge Guidetty.

“The opportunity to compete for an FIM-sanctioned World Championship in the 450cc and 250cc class is truly special and our team is hungry to showcase its talent on a global stage competing in front of millions of fans in Australia and Wales.

“We believe our team has the confidence, experience, and ability to compete for the unprecedented title of world champion.”

The 2022 WSX Championship commences at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, with the British Grand Prix on 8 October.
