When the door fell for the first motorcycle it was Hakon Osterhagen who ripped the holeshot on his Fantic. The Norwegian looked comfortable up front but had Meico Vettik and Toms Macuks not too far behind him. Disaster struck about fifteen minutes from the end as Osterhagen had a bike problem that fell back into command.
Meico Vettik took over up front but Latvian Toms Macuks had another idea and once he saw Osterhagen in trouble he almost immediately moved up front. It looked like a comfortable win for Macuks, but with two to go, Vettik was right there! Macuks did well to retain the lead on his KTM machine.
Johannes Klein rode well to go home in third while Osterhagen moved up to sixth.
In race two, Osterhagen’s bike lasted the distance this time as he dominated the proceedings at the front of the pack. Macuks didn’t have the best of starts but fought his way to a solid second place to win the overall and the EMX2t title.
Vettik was on track for a podium finish but found himself with a trailing scorer in the final stages of the race which saw him hit the bridge. The Estionian was clearly not happy and then hit the back marker before continuing his run! The organizers decided to disqualify him from the race for unsportsmanlike behavior.
