Calvin Vlaanderen grabbed the holeshot and early lead in MXGP race one over Gajser and Maxime Renaux. Vlaanderen led for the first half of the race, be- fore making a mistake and being passed by Renaux on lap seven. Gajser then pressured Renaux and finally made the pass stick to take over the lead. Jeremy See- wer came on strong with a late- race charge that saw him catch and pass his Yamaha teammate Renaux. The two stayed close but Renaux fell on the final lap which allowed Seewer to main- tain second position. Gajser easily took the victory ahead of Seewer while Renaux recovered in time to secure third.
