Race One: Lucas Coenen grabbed the holeshot in the opening race ahead of Simon Laengenfelder but it didn’t take Kay de Wolf long to get his way into second.

The Husqvarna riders then set a very high pace at the front of the pack and pulled away from the rest of the field despite the very tricky and technical conditions.

The gap hovered around a second and it looked like we were set for a grand stand finish on the final lap. With two laps to go De Wolf made a couple of mistakes but he was flying and closed the gap again before another costly mistake meant he couldn’t get close enough to make a pass. Coenen rode well under the pressure to bring home the race win.

Laengenfelder had a lonely but sold ride for third with Adamo in fourth ahead of Elzinga.

Race Two: Laengenfelder got the holeshot to the delight of his home crowd but the Husqvarna’s were on the move. De Wolf made a move and started to pull away at the front but Coenen was on the move.

The Belgian got into second and tried to catch de Wolf who was doing a good job but then the Dutch rider crashed dropping down to third. Coenen then had a comfortable gap and he brought it home to win the third GP in a row.

Adamo was battling with Laengenfelder early and had actually made a move for third before a costly crash dropped him down to sixth.

After de Wolf picked it back up he was locked in an intense battle with Laengenfelder as the pair swapping positions a few times before de Wolf got the better of him.

Mikkel Haarup had a strong ride on his Triumph for fourth.
