It was a stunning start to life on the Jetcross World Tour as the beautiful Daytona Beach played host to Jetcross racing for the very first time and it was Valentin Dardillat, from Dardillat 8 Racing, who became the first victor on American waters.
While the weather was great, the water conditions were choppy making for a tough challenge for the 12-strong field of racers from both France and the United States.
Kawasaki-rider Dardillat was first over the line on what was to become an amazing weekend for the Frenchman. He was followed over the line by James Wilson, the highest finishing American.
Completing the top three was Brice Lopez as he held of challenges from Antony Torelli and Broc Harris who finished fourth and fifth respectively.
The race was dominated by the French contingent as none finished inside the bottom four.
Moto 1 in Daytona was a sign of things to come as the 2017 series was full of outstanding performances, great battles and the beginning of a monumental campaign for Dardillat.
