The Motocross World Championship season rages on, with the next stop at le Circuit du Puy de Poursay in Saint Jean D'Angely. The French hard pack course played host to the Motocross of Nations in 2000 and only entered the GP calendar in 2007, with Ernee staging the event up until then. It was on that year that Yamaha completed a clean sweep at a sweltering St. Jean, with Coppins winning the MX1 and Tony Cairoli topping the MX2 podium. Italian Cairoli will be hoping for a similar feat in the MX1 category this year.
Saint Jean D'Angely is a French town surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape, characterised by the river Boutonne that flows through the town. St. Jean is 150km north of Bordeaux and the border of Spain, with a population of about 7,500 inhabitants. Among the town's most interesting and historical buildings are the Abbaye Royale (Royal Abbey) and the Fontaine du Pilori (Fountain of Pilori) which can be watched while walking through the traditional St. Jean d'Angely market on a Wednesday or Saturday.
