Krummenacher and Caricasulo have dominated WorldSSP this season, with the Bardahl Yamaha pairing winning all but two of the nine races n 2019. Krummenacher has accounted for four of those wins, with Caricasulo victorious on three occasions, but the Italian has also finished on the podium in every single race this season.
Caricasulo's third victory of the season came last time out in Portimão where, after disputing the race lead with his teammate, the Italian was credited with the win following a red flag that brought the race to a premature end with four laps remaining. Krummenacher was pragmatic about the defeat but will be out for revenge this weekend in France although, unlike his teammate, the Swiss rider has never finished on the podium at Magny-Cours before.
If anyone is going to take the fight to Krummenacher and Caricasulo this weekend it will be GMT94 Yamaha Supported WorldSSP rider, Jules Cluzel, who has two wins to his name this season and is the only rider to deny the top step of the podium to the battling Bardahl Yamaha duo in 2019.
Cluzel has an enviable record at home, having won at Magny-Cours four times previously, including last year. The Frenchman will also enjoy a stronger home crowd advantage this weekend, thanks to an initiative by the GMT94 Yamaha team that will see more than 3000 additional French fans join the team for their home round.
