Last week we ran into David Vuillemin at Glen Helen while he was putting in some laps in preparation for the upcoming 2009 FIM World Motocross Championships. The French racer has picked up stakes here in the US and has returned to his hometown in southern France. DV12 is on a new team, a new bike, with new gear. Just about the only thing that remains the same for the fan favorite is his customary Shark helmet and the unusual style that led his to nickname, Le Cobra. On Tuesday we again saw David, this time at Perris Raceway, doing some very fast laps along with his new teammate on the factory supported Bud Racing Kawasaki team, young Frenchman Gautier Paulin. Enjoy this photo gallery and be sure to check out the video interview of DV12 from last week.
