The fourth BEX 5-hour International Endurance (Belgian Endurance-cross Championship), also known as the 'Endurance du Doudou', took place yesterday at the illustrious Circuit du Bois Brûlé in Mons-Ghlin! It was the first part of a busy weekend organized by the Royal Mons Auto Moto Club and the 4th edition of the 'Endurance du Doudou' was a great success. Today is the turn of the 41st edition of the Motocross du Doudou, but that's another story!

It was a bright, rain-free day at the Circuit du Bois Brûlé. Given the condition of the bikes in the closed park when we arrived late in the morning, it was easy to guess the wet conditions the riders faced during the practice and timed sessions, which had taken place a few hours earlier. happened! The sun and the pleasant temperature were completely unexpected and a great reward for the 86 teams, including almost 30 solo riders, who appeared at the start, as well as for the organizers.

In terms of sports, the start was at 12:00 noon. The young Mattéo Puffet (#134) gave us a real spectacle. The young Waal started solo and literally flew over the event. After the 3 hours allowed for solo riders, he had a lead of more than a lap over his nearest rival. The first checkered flag fell shortly after 15.00 p.m. The couples then continued for another 2 hours to complete the 5-hour race.

The results

Mattéo Puffet won the solo race (3 hours) ahead of Frank Rougraef and Steve Piret. In the 5-hour race, Hugo Stiennes and Romain Delbrassine won ahead of Lillo and Colson and Botron and Debroux. Also worth mentioning was the Finet – Topak team, which came 6th overall and 1st in the small displacement 'Bex 1' class. Last but not least, the 4 riders in the vintage category should be commended for their performance, as they rode a long race together with the modern bikes.
