The famous Le Touquet Enduropale beach enduro is always an event to see the best of the best riding the best off-road motorcycles. Part of the race, and good for €1500 prize money, is the holeshot, which is some 7.5 kms from the start. Usually, the motorcycles that are trying to win the holeshot are specially prepared, high performance, motorcycles, like the BMW 1200 HP2, or KTM 950's, anything with a big engine that can power the rider along the beach at speeds in excess of 200 kph.

But the 2008 edition of the Le Touquet beach enduro saw an unusual motorcycle take part in the holeshot race, AND win. The motorcycle is not originally an off -road one, it's a Honda 900 CBR Fireblade!
