Quickly rising through the ranks in French adult motocross he sensationally clinching the FIM European EMX250 title in a nail-biting finale at the age of nineteen and by the age of twenty-two had scored his maiden GP victory in Brazil and secured the MX2 series bronze medal.
Entering the premier MXGP class the following year he made a solid start with a string of top six finishes before rising to the occasion at the eighth round of the series in his native France. He eventually recorded eight GP victories on his way to the 2015 MXGP world title.He has also led his country to three victories in the Motocross of Nations.
Injuries cost him the opportunity to repeat his individual world title success in following seasons and a broken femur sustained in August 2019 but the opportunity to join the Kawasaki Racing Team the following season softened the blow.
Immediate surgery and rehabilitation saw him back in training by the end of the year but a mutual decision between rider and team delayed his racing comeback until his body was totally recovered. The wisdom of this decision was confirmed when he returned to racing in Latvia in 2021 after sitting out the first two rounds of the world series and immediately raced onto the podium.
A succession of top six placing, including a season total of six podiums and a first victory in Green at Mantova in Italy saw him ranked fourth in the final, narrowly missing a medal despite sitting out those first two rounds as his smooth and highly-effective riding style has blended impeccably with the outstanding power and handling of the KX450-SR.
Romain enters his third season with Kawasaki and, with an undisturbed winter of preparation, both rider and team prepare for the season with understandable optimism.
