Entering this fifth round on top of the standings GPKR’s Livia Lancelot wrapped up the Title with the overall victory as runner up Steffi Laier of KTM Germany took second after her rear shock absorber broke in heat two. Ashley Fiolek rounded off today’s podium as Maria Franke completed the top three in the Championship standings.
Larissa Papenmeier and home rider Marielle de Mol rounded off today’s top five.

1st Moto

Elin Mann led the early stages after a solid jump out of the gate; KTM fellow rider Laier worked her way up to Mann’s tail to move past her and win from Lancelot, who also moved past Mann. The latter settled for an eventual third ahead of Fiolek, running in fourth for the entire moto. De Mol worked her way up from the bottom of the top ten to fifth. Franke struggled and finished twelfth.

2nd Moto

Fiolek took the holeshot but could find her ideal pace only late in the moto as she dropped down to the bottom of the top five after the opening laps. As Fiolek worked her way up to third a battle for victory was going on in between leader Laier and Lancelot. Laier broke the back shock absorber and faded to sixth while Lancelot won. Papenmeier took a strong second place as De Mol finished a consistent fourth. This was not Franke’s best day as she finished ninth in the final heat.
