Vialle (427 pts) extends his lead in the World Cup standings by one extra point. Geerts (416 points) is the first pursuer on eleven points. Liam Everts is twelfth with 145 points, Florent Lambillon 43rd with 4 points.

In the MXGP, Swiss Jeremy Seewer (Yamaha) won the first heat earlier in the day. Brent Van Doninck (Yamaha) came in third. The second series starts at 17h10.

The next Grand Prix is ​​scheduled for next Sunday, in Teutschenthal, Germany.
