Soon after he took the lead and despite the fact that he wasn’t able to find his rhythm he held on to win the race. Boyd was riding a strong race and came home in 13th place. Rick took a good start but due to arm pump he had to lower the pace and came home in 27th position.

At the start of the second moto it was van Berkel who ran into the gate and had to come back from the back of the field. He made up a lot of positions in the opening lap and started to close down the gap tot he leaders. In the closing stages of the race he found a place to take over the lead and finally won the race. Boyd had great battles in a group of riders and crossed the finish line in fifteenth place. Rick had a better rhythm in the second moto and ended up in seventeenth place.
