    RACE 3 (MX1 & OPEN)

    The final moto opened with a massive tangle at the start straight, where moto 1 winner and Italy leader Cairoli went down. The MX1 World Champion’s bike broke and he could not rejoin the race.

    Barragan led the opening laps with Dungey following in second until he found an open door and snatched the top spot. The American would continue leading until taking victory at lap 17.

    Barragan struggled and dropped down to fourth, with both Ramon and Philippaerts entering the top three.

    Frossard made up for a difficult first heat courtesy of a fifth place finish but it was French countryman Paulin who could not provide the necessary support to the squad. The Open class rider went down at lap one, landing on some riders’ bikes which had previously crashed.

    Race was finished for Paulin and team France dropped down to second behind overall winner Team USA. Despite a tangle damaging Desalle’s bike, Belgium made it to the podium in third. Germany took fourth ahead of Great Britain and Italy.

    Dungey (USA) took the individual MX1 victory, Musquin (France) won the MX2 and Philippaerts (Italy) won the Open class. The Ricky Carmichael Award went to Dutch Herlings, who turned 15 on September 12.
