Honda complete memorable triple in France

Honda riders gave their factory much to celebrate last weekend in Le Mans, with a victory in each of the three World Championship categories. Thomas Luthi, Yuki Takahashi and Marco Melandri contributed to a feat unseen in 2005.

The last time that three Honda riders were on the top step of a podium was back at the 2004 Japanese Grand Prix, when Andrea Dovizioso, Dani Pedrosa and Makoto Tamada made up the rostrum places.

Honda also reached victory number 199 as a result of the premier class triumph, and 198 in the quarter litre category.

Luthi and Takahashi achieved the factory's first victories of the year in both 125cc and 250cc, after Aprilia and KTM dominated the first four races.
