The second edition of the Scorpion Masters has been a huge success, and the fans had to wait the fifth and last race to know the winner of this unusual event. Frenchman Serge Nuques finally beats British Enduro star David Knight, who finished tight with Supermoto Champion Adrien Chareyre.

Former Enduro rider, Serge Nuques was the most consistent rider this weekend in Alès, and confirmed his ability on any kind of track. Except in Enduro, he finished all the races in the top seven and thanks to his consistency he was finally able to beat David Knight, who was leading the classification before the last race. David was for sure excellent in the Enduro – second behind Pierre Alexandre Renet – and surprised most of the assistance during the Trial where he scored a great fourth position! Fast during the Supermoto race that he also finished in fourth position “Knighter” did his best in the road race stages where he scored a thirteenth and a fifteenth positions. Not so bad for an Offroad rider, but not enough to contain Nuques who has a great experience as he is since several years racing asphalt rallyes. Winner of the French Tour, and one month ago of the Tunisian rally, Nuques – who also entered in the past the famous Tourist Trophy – made the difference with Knight and Chareyre on asphalt to win the FZ8 Yamaha.




With four different winners (Fujinami in trial, Demaria in Supermoto, Renet in Enduro and Da Costa in road race), two World Champions on the podium, more than 20000 fans and delighted riders as all came there to have fun, the Scorpion Masters is already a famous event! See you there next year for the third edition!
