Anderson grabbed a rare holeshot to start the second moto, and proceeded to pull a small gap on the field, as Switzerland’s Arnaud Tonus, France’s Gautier Paulin and Holland’s Jeffrey Herlings rounded out the top four. Herlings made short work of Paulin and Tonus and was soon closing in on Anderson, although Anderson picked up the pace, putting the pressure back on Herlings. A Herlings bobble with eight minutes remaining slowed the newly crowned MX2 champ’s charge and gave Anderson some breathing room, which he held to the finish. However, that’s when the unimaginable happened. As Anderson was coasting away from the finish line, celebrating his win, a lapped rider flew full bore over the finish line jump and landed squarely on Anderson, seeming to knock the Husqvarna rider out.
