Yamaha France Enter IRRC Supersport Series With Pierre Yves Bian

Yamaha France are confirmed to enter the 2017 International Road Racing Championship, as they run fellow Frenchman Pierre Yves Bian.

The fourth place finisher in last years IRRC Supersport series, is regarded by many at this moment in time, as France’s leading roads exponent.

A top three finisher in both Supersport encounters in 2016 at Imatra, he also impressed in particular at Chimay and Horice.

In my opinion Pierre is one of the most talented French riders, to have emerged in recent years.

Alongside his IRRC campaign, 2017 is also set to see him delve into Irish road racing action for the first time, as he makes his debut at the world’s fastest road race, the Ulster Grand Prix.

He had also considered making his North West 200 and Manx Grand Prix debuts, but won’t due to selected IRRC events, overlapping with two of pure road racing’s leading meetings.

Highly ambitious, Pierre is planning to in the future, compete at the Isle of Man TT.

Proven already on roads circuits, he has the core roads craft, to in years to come, establish himself as one of continental Europe’s leading competitors at the most famous road race in the world.
