With conditions tricky and wet, taking a good start was important and Romain Febvre made sure he done that. The French rider who hurt his wrist in free practice was third after the first corner but was very aggressive and made sure he was leading after turn two.

Febvre then pulled away at the front to dominate the qualifying race. Prado was second and looking comfortable but Gajser who didn’t get the best of starts made quick passes and caught Prado to pass him for second.

Seewer who is looking much better this weekend on his Kawasaki also passed Prado to get into third – the MXGP championship is now tied at the top between Prado and Gajser!

Herlings took a decent start but got tangled up with Pauls Jonass and had to come from way back – he was able to get back up to seventh but then made a mistake on the final lap dropping down to tenth losing vital points.
