Forma boots got the distance at Bol d'Or

FORMA supported riders took first, second and third places on the podium at Magny Cours in the 73rd Bol d'Or 24-Hour World Endurance race.
Suzuki Endurance Racing Team (SERT) rider Freddy Foray piloted the GSX-R1000 to 815 laps, three more than runners-up Honda Michelin Power, whose Matthieu Lagrive also relies on Forma boots. In third was another Forma racer, Javier Fores on the Team GSR Kawasaki.
Following an action-packed opening, with four riders crashing on the second lap and the safety cars forced to circulate for some time, SERT held a narrow lead after three hours. During the night they gradually stretched their advantage over Honda Michelin Power and Yamaha France GMT. Mechanical reliability and quicker pit stops built Suzuki's lead to three laps, sealing the team's victory in this prestigious endurance event.
