The MX2 qualification race was a cracker in the early going as Jose Butron led from Jordi Tixier, Mel Pocock, Dean Ferris, Jake Nicholls and Christophe Charlier. The pace was amazing as the front guys battled for that top spot.

Ferris moved into third place on lap two and looked likely to also pass Butron, but at the back of the circuit, in a downhill section the Aussie lost control of his bike and dropped back to fifth place.  Click here for the clip of his crash. Tixier had passed Butron for the lead, and Nicholls moved into second place on lap five.

Once Ferris was out of  the picture Tixier walked away with the moto from a hard charging Nicholls second, then came Butron, Febvre, Anstie, Coldenhoff, Clermont, Ferris, Lupino, Tonus, Ferrandis and Pocock.

In the MX1 moto Antonio Cairoli took the lead early and just made this race his own, Early on it was Seb Pourcel and Jeremy Van Horebeek who looked for a top three finish, but Pourcel slowly dropped back as the two Rockstar Suzuki riders Clement Desalle and Kevin Strijbos passed him.

British hope, Tommy Searle was miles back after a problematic first lap after getting tangled up with Marc De Reuver, and Shaun Simpson raced around the top ten. Evgeny Bobryshev who had a terrible first corner, where you was lucky not to crash, but got pushed around returned to the pits on lap one.

Cairoli eventually won with a four second lead over Van Horebeek, with Desalle third, a further five seconds back.
