Nicolas Devys: "I wanted to do better in 2017"

Nicolas Devys, who finished fourth in the JX3 Lites Ski Amateur class in 2017, whilst also racing on the AquaX Tour, but is hoping for better in 2018.

The Calais born racer had a solid but unspectacular season, finishing on the podium in Estavayer before dropping out of third place in the final round in So'Fun Village.

In the end Devys only missed out on third in the championship by 27 points, a tally that could have been overturned in just one race, but the Frenchman was disappointed with his overall performance.

"I wanted to do better," said Devys. "I made a mistake at the second round in Vichy and I was forced to take a one lap penalty which cost me.

"And then at the final round in So'Fun I fell at the start meaning I was last to leave the start line. But that's racing."

Despite his disappointment, Devys thoroughly enjoyed the Jetcross championship which he thinks is one of the most entertaining out there.

"Jetcross is an incredible race series. There's always big battles on the water with 36 riders at the final round in So'Fun in the JX3 class. You always get plenty of contact and overtaking. We put on a fantastic show."

Having raced in both the Jetcross and AquaX seeries last year, Devys says the former is far more technical whilst AquaX sees you step on the gas more often.

"In Jetcross the track is very technical and you have to make a difference in the turns, whilst in AquaX the track is not as technical but is very physical. Without waves, you are always full on the gas and with waves you have to manage the jumps."

So what is Devys aiming for in 2018? He's keeping it simple.

"My aims for 2018 is to do better than 2017"
