Jeremy Van Horebeek had been preparing for the Le Touquet after the SR Honda team agreed a deal with the Belgian to contest the event.
The Belgian led the event for two hours until his Honda fell victim to the tough conditions and it meant he had to pull out but the experience was something Van Horebeek clearly enjoyed.
Now we have to see what his future holds, it’s unlikely he will race the first round of the MXGP World Championship but it would be nice to see him back in the paddock.
“We almost did it. It’s still not easy to accept the day after but we have to walk away with a big smile. It’s been a wonderful journey and to be in the lead and dance for almost 2 hours until my bike broke was amazing. Big thanks to my team and all the staff and thank you to all the fans for the messages and the support. Let’s see what the futur brings”, Van Horebeek commented.
