Yentel Martens on the podium in Le Touquet

Yentel Martens of JM Honda Racing has finished on the podium in the beach race of Le Touquet. Martens was riding a strong race and after three demanding hours he managed to cross the finish line in third position.

After a preparation of months, Yentel started the weekend with a good feeling. Because of set backs in the previous Le Touquet races he was determined to set this right!

Yentel found his rhythm straight away. After a poor start he worked his way up inside of the top five in the beginning of the race. He tried to avoid the collisions with the back markers and was riding in control. He had a good battle with fellow Honda riders Lars van Berkel and Cyril Genot. Despite a mistake in the closing stages of the race, Yentel was able to take over third position and finished on the podium.

Yentel Martens: ‘’It was a hard race not having a good start. Fighting till the finish. It feels good to be on that podium! A big thank you to my team and all the people supporting me.’’
