KTM and Antoine Meo will take on Le Touquet this year and there is a lot of prep work that goes into preparing for that much sand riding. Meo is obviously a capable rider, he is a World Enduro Champion, French Enduro Champion and part of the winning French ISDE team in 2009, 2010 and 2012, but this is a new type of event for him. The length of the event and the terrain is something he is not used to. So Red Bull and KTM have put him on a totally different training program to help him prepare for the race. Watch Part 1 to learn more about high altitude training.
