The Belgian winner of the last FIM EWC season was speaking during the launch press conference about the 24H SPA EWC Motos last Friday.
“I grew up in the paddock of World Endurance so I grew up in Spa,” said Xavier Siméon, whose famous father Michel was a two-time winner the 24 Hours of Liège, which took place at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps as a round of the EWC from 1973-2001."
“I never had the chance to have a local race when I ride in MotoGP and Moto2 so it will be a very proud moment for me to come back on this beautiful track.
“I didn’t ride a lot in Spa-Francorchamps in my career but for sure I had more opportunities than my opponents so I know perfectly the track”
“I know it will be a very challenging race, the 24H Spa EWC Motos will be very demanding for the riders, the bikes, it will be the toughest race of the season.”
