Eric Perronard is one of my favorite people in the industry. A part of the pit area for longer than I've been alive, the well-connected Frenchman stays busy with roles like a global advisor for Fox Racing, competition director at Red Bull's Imagination and Straight Rhythm events, and rider coordinator for the Paris Supercross.
Last weekend's race at the LaDefense Arena was Eric's thirty-fifth, and with Xavier Audouard, they put together a championship-caliber lineup that drew two nights of massive crowds and worldwide attention.
We grabbed some time with Eric on Sunday afternoon and talked about everything from the essence of the race and its place in European motocross to the next step for electric motorcycles and what he sees from his place in the sport.
