It was a busy weekend for Honda Racing RedMoto World Enduro Team and Antoine Meo, who tackled the 33rd edition of the Trefle Lozerien.
First introduced in 1986, the Trefle Lozerien is considered to be the most popular enduro competition in France. It is a three-day race made up of three different routes close to Mende, with a total of around 600km with the last special test against the background of the magnificent cathedral.
The 34-year-old French rider with Italian origins raced this historic off-road race with the team led by Matteo Boffelli on the CRF450RX Enduro, demonstrating his passion for Enduro after a career split between motocross, rally and Dakar.
This year’s race was characterised by bad weather: the heavy rain made the route even more challenging.
Meo had a good race, finishing the special test in the top ten and taking 19th overall, despite having starting number #200, which meant that he had to faced the churned ground ruined by the passage of the previous 199 riders.
It was a good training ground as Meo and the team prepare for their next event: the Grand Prix of Italy at Valli Bergamasche (21-23 June).
