World biggest motorcycle race, the beach race of Le Touquet, France will be held again next year 2007. Called the Le Touquet Enduropale Open link in a new window, the race is becoming increasing popular (considering it's over 30 years old), both with the riders and the general public (with up to 500,000 viewers). The race was started by the same person who dreamed up the famous Paris-Dakar race; Thierry Sabine.

This year the organizers foresee a rapid registration of motorcycle riders from all corners of the globe. Since we've recieved quite some emails asking for more information, in order to help you make up your mind so that you can plan your trip, here's some information.

Enduropale 2007

The crazy beach race will be held on Sunday, 11th of February 2007. The quad race is on Saturday.

The track is 15.5 kilometers long, with different levels of technical difficulties. The 1,000 motorcycles will start around 13:00 on Sunday, and speed all the way along the 15.5 kilometers towards the holeshot. After the long straight, you've got three hours of racing along the track.
