Mousse Rules Le Touquet For The Second Year In A Row

A crowd of several hundred thousand braved cold and strong winds on the north French coast of Le Touquet and were able to witness a Yamaha 1-2-3 across the podium of the 8th Enduropale. Victorious for the second year in a row was native Jean Claude Mousse, who clinched the top spot on his YZ450F by over a minute from Milko Potisek with Belgian Adrien Van Beveren in third place.

Freezing gale force gusts blasted the coastline and the 17km course that was invaded by almost 1000 entrants. Among the participants was a host of national and world champions in disciplines such as motocross, enduro and rally. The likes of Antoine Meo, Steve Ramon, Olivier Pain and Livia Lancelot were just some of the names that were shown the fastest route around the sandy curves and dunes by Mousse, who now boasts four career triumphs at the popular beach spectacle (three with Yamaha) in its 38 year existence.

Jeremy Forestier and Florian Mangeot grabbed second and third places in the quad category and were two of six Yamaha-powered Quads in the final top ten.

42 year old Mousse commented on the podium that the meeting had been a strange one. The incoming tide had forced the event to be curtailed after almost two hours of racing (when the full distance should have been three). Potisek was in fact leading the field as the red flag was shown but with results taken from the previous lap the reigning French Champ was able to classify first and was confirmed with the winner’s trophy after a delay to confirm the final standings. The 2013 Le Touquet was already being labelled the ‘petit Enduropale’ in some early press reports.
