The Monster Energy Grand Prix de France was the spectacle it promised. With 80,000 fans packed into the Le Mans circuit the motorsports world was treated to some fantastic racing set against a backdrop of a party atmosphere which seemed to spill onto the track.

Monster Energy riders nearly made it a clean sweep in all three classes as Pol Espargaro and Toni Elias laid claim to the 125cc and Moto2 races in style.

Both are now super strong contenders for the title in their classes.

In the MotoGP field, Valentino Rossi came home second to euphoria from the grandstands before and after the race.

Up on the podium he was greeted by Ken Block who presented a trophy on behalf of Monster.
