French Star Denis Secures PerformanX, SL Moto Sponsorship For Second Macau GP Quest

French roads star Xavier Denis has secured strong sponsorship for next months Macau Grand Prix, having gained backing from SL Moto, PerformanX.

Having enjoyed in recent times, a strong collection of formidable roads performances, Xavier has firmly established himself amongst France’s leading pure road racers.

A race winner at Chimay plus a podium finisher at Terlicko in the Czech Republic, the Frenchman has in particular over recent seasons impressed within the hugely competitive Super Twins class.

Outside of his 650 exploits, he’s also recorded aboard Supersport and Superstock machinery, an abundance of very creditable results.

This includes a brace of bronze replica finishes at TT 2017, including finishing 26th in the RST Superbike race.

24th in last years Macau Grand Prix, he’s looking forward to sampling for the second time the fast flowing, technical, uncompromising roads of Macau.

Speaking yesterday via Facebook about his deal to pilot SL Moto/PerformanX backed S1000RR BMW machinery in November, he candidly stated:

“Thanks to SL Moto and performanX who are linking together to allow me to go to Macau with this young German girl (BMW). We met Monday in Magny-Cours, many things to discover because the miss (BMW) is more sophisticated than my usual mounts.

We did not have a lot of time to get to know each other, but I felt that we could understand each other and we will have to take advantage of the few tests on the track in Macau so that we are on the same page.

Now we have a little bit of work to finalise the details before closing the flight case, on the road to Asia. For this event, the bike will display a special Macau livery. We will announce our other sponsors and partners for this legendary race when the fairings will be ready.”
