Sherco’s Jeremy Tarroux claimed one of the most prestigious wins in French enduro with victory at the Trefle Lozerien.

The three-day enduro in Mende France, is the single most important French classic enduro on the race calendar. 

In what was a final day showdown between himself and Yamaha’s Jamie McCanney, Tarroux upheld French honour winning the event for the very first time.

"I wanted to put my name on the Clover list, which so many great champions have won,” told Tarroux — the winner of the 31st edition. “I did not always ride well on this ordeal, I had a hard time letting go of some special stages, but I knew how to respond to my opponents at the right time.
