Ferrandis Wins the Junior Race in Le Touquet

It’s under the sun of Northern France that Dylan Ferrandis grabbed his first trophy of the season, when he won the junior race organised during the famous Enduro du Touquet.

Since his first edition in 1975 the Enduro grew up to become the biggest beach race in the world, with more than 1,000 riders and several hundred thousands of spectators every year. Since five years now the event is named Enduropale and has a new layout to preserve the natural sand dunes, and also another race for the junior class who battled on Saturday during 90 minutes aboard KX250F machinery with normal tanks.

One week after his top ten result during the Hossegor Beach Race, Dylan Ferrandis was among the favorites for his first appearance in le Touquet.

The Bud Racing Team rider had a perfect start as he grabbed the holeshot and led the beginning of the race on frozen sand, but he didn’t take too many risks during the first circulations.

When the track became rougher at mid period Dylan increased his rhythm and came back to the leadership of the race; he was so strong that none of his rivals was able to follow him and he finished the race four minutes ahead of everyone.

For the young kid it’s a great reward to his intensive winter program alongside Jacky Vimond, and for the team who developed the winning KX250F it’s the best way to start the new season.

Now everyone will focus on the 2011 Motocross season, as Dylan, Gregory Aranda, Davide Guarneri and Livia Lancelot will all enter the Valence MX International race on February 20th in Valence, France.
