This was definitely a weekend to forget for Christophe Nambotin (KTM). After his performance on day one he, he fell again and crushed the exhaust manifold on the first lap of the race – an incident that cost him big before he could replace it. Despite an excellent final round he finished second. The happiness of one often comes from the misfortune of others. His closest rival in the championship, Anthony Boissiere (Sherco Moto Pulsion) was unable to continue his great comeback and was forced to retire with a mechanical problem. That opened the door for Marc Bourgeois to secure his first win of the season.
