The epic race of the Enduropale du Touquet Pas-de-Calais is known for its extreme conditions, tough races and stormy weather. However the wet and sticky sand did not hold back Yamaha; the mechanics perfectly applied their craft to get the riders at the forefront of the Enduropale du Touquet race, the toughest sand race in the world. The Yamaha riders led the way for much of the races on Le Touquet-Paris plage beach this weekend thanks to strong performances and reliable bikes, resulting in full blue all-Yamaha podiums.
In short Yamaha won:
– On Saturday: two French Sand Champion titles and one podium at the Enduropale in the Junior category and three French Sand Champion titles + a full Enduropale podium in the quad category.
– On Sunday: a podium on the Enduropale Espoirs race and a full podium in the elite category with a victory for Adrien Van Beveren, who had just returned from the Dakar.
SATURDAY JANUARY 30th
Two Yamaha riders were crowned French Sand Champion in the Junior category
In the 250cc category, Maxime Sot and his Yamaha YZ250F won the 2015-2016 French Sand Championship. The young rider avoided taking any unnecessary risks and rode safely to bring back the title to Yamaha by finishing fourth in the Enduropale Junior.
Pierre Morel also rose to the challenge and became 2015-2016 French Sand Champion in the 125cc category. At the handlebars of his Yamaha YZ125 he signed off with a top-10 at the Enduropale Junior, which led him to victory.
Despite his injury at the beginning of the season, Jérémy Hauquier and his YZ125 ended the season on a positive note with a win and overall fifth place on the Toquet-Paris Plage beach in the 125cc category.
The 2015 MX125 World Champion, Maxime Renaux, missed the victory on the Enduropale Junior race by just a few metres. The 2015 edition Enduropale Junior winner and Kemea Yamaha Official MX Team rider ended up in second place with only a 0.6s gap to the rider in first place.
Second consecutive triple podium for Yamaha in the quad category
Expectations were high for Jeremie Warnia in the quad race on Saturday. In his quest for victories he brought back home two titles: winner of the 2016 Quaduro and 2015-2016 French Sand Champion. The rider demonstrated again his great riding abilities and all his expertise on sandy surfaces; it is his fifth victory on the Enduropale du Touquet Pas-de-Calais.
Following closely in his tracks, fellow Yamaha rider Antoine Cheurlin signed off with a strong second position, while being chased by another Yamaha rider, Florian Mangeot, in third position.
