Nick managed to keep the bike up but Paul wasn't so lucky. After dusting himself off and performing a quick damage assessment, Paul remounted his twisted up Yamaha YZ450F and headed back out on the course in dead last. With bent bars and large time deficit, Whibley did his best to put his head down and stay positive. By the end of the first lap, he had already worked his way back into third place right behind Fahringer. As the two entered the second lap Whibley made his move, easily getting around Nick and setting his sights on Russell Bobbitt. By the end of the third lap, Whibley made up another 30 seconds on Russell and the two engaged in a battle that would go all the way to the finish. On the last lap Bobbitt picked a bad line through one of the many deteriorating mud sections allowing Paul to get by and take the overall win for the day!
