Enduropale 2014 Poster
Well, the famous Le Touquet Enduropale Open link in a new window beach race is over for another year, and if you didn't catch it on TV or webcast, let me tell you ... it was an epic massacrer.

A storm was blowing (remember that the race is held in Le Touquet Click for map, the North of France, and it's winter), and the tide was being blown in, so a lot of water. The sand was wet and those bits of sand that weren't soaked were being blown into the faces of the 1100 motorcycle riders and was sticking there.

For those of you who saw the race, and saw the amateur racer getting hit by the front runner and air-lifted to hospital, the rider is fine. He was just stunned by the impact and his life is not in danger.

Adrien Van Beveren on a Yamaha won the event (on the last lap).

I am sure that over the next few days, you will be finding many videos on YouTube of the event. If you get the chance, watch them....

Here are a few photos of the epic event.
