Eight time World Champion Stefan Everts made an excellent performance as he dominated both Moto1 and 2, riding flawlessly, the way that only Everts knows how. During Moto1 the Yamaha/L&M;/Rinaldi rider took the holeshot and no one managed to catch him. In Moto2, Everts had to work a little harder. He had one rider to overtake, Joshua Coppins, before running away with the lead, once again riding fluidly despite the treacherous and sandy track.Thanks to this double victory, Everts gained 40 points on his direct opponent, French rider Mickael Pichon who suffered a very bad day. In Moto1 he was tangled in a first turn crash with Ben Townley and Joel Smets. The Honda/Telefonica/Martin rider regrouped and tried to recover, but crashed three more times before the race was over. He was only able to salvage a 13th place finish. Moto2 wasn't much better than the first; Pichon wound up 8th.Very good performance for Joshua "Lizard" Coppins as well: he was the second overall thanks to his 4th and 2nd positions. The Honda/Cas rider started well in the first moto, but during the 4th lap he had to take off his glasses which were too dirty and without them, riding on a sandy track becomes almost impossible. He wisely decided to be content with a satisfactory 4th place. Things definitely went better for Coppins in Moto2 where he landed second place.Young New Zelander Ben Townley rode a remarkable race: As already said, he fell at the beginning of Moto1. Townley started dead last and dashed off in pursuit of the pack. He made ground lap by lap and was remarkably still able to land on the podium, finishing in third place. In Moto2, the factory KTM rider was running second just behind Everts when a fall brought him back to fifth place.Stefan Everts "Today was physically very hard even if I had a fairly easy race. I had two good starts which meant I could control the races and find the best lines on the track. I have been looking for this double win for a long time. I have to keep going and try not to make many mistakes like in Teutschethal; as long as I am on the podium consistently then this is good enough."Josh Coppins "I wasn't so happy with the first moto because I lost my goggles on lap four and got a lot of sand and dirt in my eyes which made things difficult. It's a little scary when you can't see on this track! But the second moto was good. I was surprised at my speed in the sand because I haven't trained that much in that sort of terrain this season. I've now moved up to third in the Championship, which is good because I was sick of getting fourths all the time! I was a little frustrated after the first race; I think it was my eighth fourth position."Ben Townley "The track was really demanding today. The uphills, downhills and soft ground made it really tough and a lot of holes formed which made it even more difficult. I recovered well in the first moto but used a lot of energy coming back to third place. Going into the second moto I knew it was going to be tough so I tried to ride consistent. It was tough for me today."
