from race one, Gajser going 1-1, Seewer 2-2, and Renaux rounding off the podium with 3-3 finishes. Gajser continues to dominate the championship, 81 points over Renaux and 105 clear of Seewer. MX2 It was a hectic start for MX2 race one as Mattia Guadagnini got off to the holeshot and early lead. He fell over in turn two, tak- ing Tom Vialle and a number of other riders down with him. This allowed Yamaha's Jago Geerts to slip through with the lead and break away from the rest of the field. Behind him, the track plagued riders with mistakes and crashes. The wet soil created slick spots in some areas while other parts of the track were deep with sticky mud. Geerts held strong for the win with Ste- phen Rubini finishing second, and Isak Gifting third. It was a great ride for Liam Everts with a fourth in race one, while Vialle charged back to fifth after his early crash. Vialle rebounded in race two, taking the lead almost right away. Geerts stayed close again and stalked Vialle for most of the race. Rubini saw a podium in sight and put together a strong ride, battling with Mikkel Haarup to secure the final overall po- dium. At the line, Vialle took the race win over Geerts and Simon Längenfelder. Geerts' 1-2 earned him the overall over Vialle's 5-1. Rubini's sixth place finish in race two solidified his third in the overall classification, his first career podium. Geerts maintains the red plate, just six points ahead of Vialle in the champion- ship. CN MXGP 1. Tim Gajser (Hon) 1-1 2. Jeremy Seewer (Yam) 2-2 3. Maxime Renaux (Yam) 3-3 4.
