2017 WorldSSP champion and 2018 WorldSSP runner-up Lucas Mahias is poised to be one of the main contenders for the 2020 WorldSSP crown in his second season with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing.
The French rider made his break onto the European scene in 2011, entering the Spanish and German championships. Crowned French Supersport Champion in 2014, he then took to the WorldSSP grid the following season, claiming his first podium. 2016 saw Mahias switch to the Endurance World Championship, as well as one-off appearances in STK1000 and WorldSBK, producing some stunning performances in both.
Committing to a full-time ride in 2017, the GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team rider battled through injury and took the title at the final round in Qatar. Mahias was unable to retain his crown in 2018 and sought a new challenge for 2019, with the Kawasaki Puccetti team. While the first half of the season was rough, Mahias managed to become a podium mainstay in the second half, picking up two wins and more points than anyone else through that period.
For 2020, the challenge will be to start the season as strongly as he finished 2019, on course to reclaiming his World Championship crown.
