IRRC Chimay: No Stopping Supersport Title Favourite Lagrive

There was no stopping title favourite Matthieu Lagrive in today’s six lap re started second IRRC Supersport race at Circuit De Chimay, as the former Bol d’Or victor clinched in great style his sixth victory within his maiden IRRC campaign.

Nigh on 1.65 seconds clear of nearest pursuer event wildcard Come Geenen, still relative newcomer to roads competition Lagrive produced yet another truly first rate all round performance.
