Rider - Maxime Desprey  Back Back
Team Mate Mel Pocock    Christophe Charlier    Dean Ferris   

Maxime Desprey is proof that the fine stream of motocross talent to come out of France this generation has yet to slow. The teenager first impressed with outings in the recently formed 125cc European series; a step towards the EMX2 Championship and then to Grand Prix.

A junior national champion in both motocross and supercross by 2009 it was only inevitable that he would make the next step and after a brief dabble with the two-strokes was on a 250F in 2011 where he came to wider consciousness. A broken collarbone prevented him from rising higher than 7th in the series although a first podium was celebrated at the final round in Germany.

In 2012 Desprey was one of the favourites for the EMX2 crown and across several events was the fastest challenger to new team-mate Mel Pocock. Indeed the Frenchman was the only rider to defeat the Englishman in the seven round affair. Having mixed studies and racing for several years Desprey has become a stylish, fresh and wonderfully exciting prospect for Monster Energy Yamaha and his first Grand Prix year in 2013.
