The main 3 hour race attracts more than 1000 contenders in its main race, without counting the Juniors, Espoirs, Vintage and the 368 contending in Quaduro. At the end of this 42nd staging on 4 and 5 February, two teams partnered technically by Motul shone particularly with a podium on two wheels and a win on four!

Despite an average start, a few falls and a slight shoulder injury, Richard fought like the devil on his new Honda CRF450R to bag his first podium on the Touquet sand.
