When the gates dropped for race one, it was Rabbit Racing Kawasaki’s Stephanie Laier who took the holeshot with Bud Racing Kawasaki’s Meghan Rutledge hard on her tail. Before the end of lap one, the Australian Rutledge had found a way around the former World Champion Laier, and soon went on to lead every lap for her first race victory this year. Despite keeping Rutledge in her sights, Laier couldn’t do anything more and was forced to settle for second. Meanwhile Chiara Fontanesi battled through the pain of her foot injury to take third place which was enough to be crowned World Champion for the second year in a row.

Meghan Rutledge rode a smart second race to take third place resulting in her first ever WMX round overall. Rabbit Racing Kawasaki’s Stephanie Laier had to fight for fourth with Dutch rider Nina Klink, while it was close in the end, the former world champion Laier managed to edge out Klink, taking home fourth in race two.
