Romain Febvre

Quickly rising through the ranks in French adult motocross Romain sensationally clinched the FIM European EMX250 title in a nail-biting finale at the age of nineteen and by the age of twenty-two the popular French rider had secured his maiden GP victory in Brazil achieving the MX2 series bronze medal.

Entering the premier MXGP class in 2015, he made a solid start with a string of top six finishes before rising to the occasion at the eighth round of the series in his native France. He eventually recorded eight GP victories on his way to that year’s MXGP world title. He has also led his country to three victories in the Motocross of Nations.

Injuries cost him the opportunity to repeat his individual world title success in following seasons and a broken femur sustained in August 2019 but the opportunity to join the Kawasaki Racing Team the following season softened the blow.

Immediate surgery and rehabilitation saw him back in training by the end of the year but a mutual decision between rider and team delayed his racing comeback until his body was totally recovered. The wisdom of this decision was confirmed when he resumed by racing in Latvia in 2021 after sitting out the first two rounds of the world series and immediately climbed the podium.

A succession of top six placing, including a season total of six podiums and a first victory in Green at Mantova in Italy saw him ranked fourth in the final, narrowly missing a medal despite sitting out those first two rounds as his smooth and highly-effective riding style has blended impeccably with the outstanding power and handling of the KX450-SR.

Fracturing a tibia and fibula in a crash at the Paris Supercross in late November 2021, Febvre had to sit out the start of the 2022 season with his frustration magnified by the news that further surgery would be required three months into his recuperation. Showing the spirit, drive and determination characteristic of a true champion, Febvre pushed as hard as was possible to get back to riding fitness and returned to the paddock at the German GP in June scoring a creditable 5th overall while still not fully fit. A string of overall top five finishes across the remainder of the season showed that the Frenchman was returning to his best reinforced by his race two win in Turkey, the last race of the year.

Entering 2023 fit and podium hungry it would be an unwise person to bet against Febvre having a stunning season
