The sandy race track was very hard and dry. There were deep lines at the some parts. Thomas Allier (Husqvarna) took the lead in the first race. Sven Breugelmans (KTM), Bas Verhoeven (Kawasaki) and Cristian Beggi (Honda) were follow him. Allier was riding very fast, as already many times in this season. He won at the end of the first race. So the battle for the first position was not one of the most interesting things. The biggest fight was happening for the second position, between Breugelmans and Beggi. They were riding wheel to the wheel and sometimes it was impossible to find out who was in front. Breugelmans was second for only some centimetres, as they were crossing the final line almost at the same time. At the begining Verhoeven made some attacks to the Breugelmans, but he gave up and finished fourth.
The winner of the second race was Breugelmans. He was leading from the very beginning, after the successful start. Beggi was coming closer, but because of the mistake during the race, he lost the connection to the top and he finished fourth. Two home riders finished between Breugelmans and Beggi. Patrick Roos was second, Bas Verhoeven was third.

In the Championship Classificarion Beggi is still the leader, but Breugelmans got nine more points and reduced his advantage.
