S1

SHR TM Mauno Hermunen today won both the heats. In race one he had a good start and battled with Ivan Lazzarini for the first position, just from the third lap he got the leadership until the end.In race two the Finnish rider, after switching positions several times with Thomas Chareyre, easily rode in first position from the beginning until the end, with the best time of 1'15.827 obtaining the first Red Plate of the season.

TM Racing Factory team TM Thomas Chareyre did not have a good qualification yesterday, so he started in fourth row, but in both heats he pushed hard on the gas and managed to gain the second position from the nine lap in race one. In race two, the defending Champion took the holeshot, made a consistent race and finished on the second step of the podium.

Third step of the podium is for the French Luc1 Awatrol HONDA Sylvain Bydart, who made two consistent results after finishing fourth in race one and third in race two. He feels very happy because after four years without appearing in the FIM Supermoto World Championship, he still has to get used to fight with the best Supermoto World riders.

Fourth position for the Italian Champion L30 Racing HONDA Ivan Lazzarini, who had a very good start in race one and obtained the hole shot, he dominated the first two laps but Mauno Hermunen was coming much faster from behind and he finished third. In race two the Italian rider has been fighting until the end for the third position but Bidart finally overtook him.

The fifth overall position was for Shr TM Petr Vorlicek, who did not have a very good day yesterday and it was difficult for him go up to the front, so he finished with an seventh place in race one, improving by two positions in race two and following his team mate Matthew Winstanley, who had a good start in race one until being third in the first part of the race, but then he did some mistakes and lost some positions and had to be satisfied with a sixth position in both heats followed by Brt Suzuki Andrea Occhini, Harbike Racing TM Thomas Travincek and Fast Wheels APRILIA Adrien Chareyre who closed the top ten.
