For the opening race, the track crew did a fantastic job to give the riders a dry track and with more than just one good line – there were some good options.

Kay de Wolf decided to take the fortieth gate but it worked a treat as he got the drive and went around the outside of everyone else. But the KTM’s were on the move as Sacha Coenen and Everts were first and second but de Wolf then put pressure on Everts with the latter then losing the front. De Wolf had nowhere to go and hit the deck as well.

Lucas Coenen was then on the move as he caught and passed his twin for the lead. Adamo then caught and made a pass stick for second before Sacha had a huge crash.

Haarup was riding a strong race in third before Laengenfelder put in a very aggressive pass which saw Haarup hit the deck. De Wolf then passed Laengenfelder in the same spot for third position. Haarup picked it back up in fifth with Everts coming back to sixth.

Quentin Prugnieres had a good moto coming from outside the top ten to eighth with Kay Karssemakers ninth holding off Rick Elzinga.

For the second moto, Lucas Coenen decided to take gate 40 this time and he got a good start but again it was his twin, Sacha that took the holeshot. It didn’t take Lucas long to make a move for the lead and then he simply pulled away and dominated. It was the perfect weekend for him and two GP overall wins in a row.

De Wolf didn’t get the best of starts but made a move on Laengenfelder for second with the German coming home in third.

Sacha Coenen had a couple of crashes to drop back to ninth which doesn’t reflect his speed. His team mate, Adamo ended up fourth to take the final step of the podium.

Oriol Oliver had a superb ride in the second moto for an impressive seventh on his WZ KTM behind Mikkel Haarup.

With five minutes to go the rain started to heavily fall making things very slick and difficult for the riders so MXGP will be interesting!
