Not even the crumbs are leaving the friend Antonio Cairoli. After overcoming the injuries that kept him from victory, the five-time World Champion is on his way to the sixth crown by scoring a perfect weekend in his locker dominating both the training sessions and the two rounds and not giving any option to the rest of the power or even thinking about approaching the top of the podium. Only a small crowd at the start of the first round prevented him from leading from start to finish, but it took him no more than a few laps to place himself first and show everyone that this is his position by right and that he does not intend to give it up.

The second driver of the team Red Bull KTM Factory Racing, Max nagl, after recovering from his back injury, he took the podium for the first time this season by signing two magnificent second places behind his leader, but more than fifteen and ten seconds respectively. Behind Gautier paulin put on a superb performance this weekend and climbed into the third step of the podium with a fourth place and a third. The Frenchman does not show himself too much but he maintains a fourth place in the general without being intimidated against the greats of the category.

The coin cross this weekend he took her Clement Desalle. It has to be difficult to fight against a motocross titan like Antonio Cairoli and see that no matter how hard you try, it costs a lot to overcome him even if he makes mistakes, so much so that Desalle is being forced to force machine to keep up with Italian and sometimes things go wrong. In training he had a strong fall and ran both sleeves with the right hand touched. He saved the furniture with a sixth place finish, but the title is uphill with a difference that is already almost up to sixty points.

The Madrilenian Jonathan Barragan rose to eighth place in the first round and in the second he had to settle for thirty-tenth place, which in the general count becomes a eleventh place and thirteen more points for his locker. He has a bit to go to get into the top ten but the poor results this season make things difficult for him for next year.
