Ulsterman Martin Barr lost the lead of the EMX250 championship after a crash in the opener saw him stuck in a fence in a crash that also took down last week’s race winner Steven Clarke, then Barr was forced to ride from the back of the pack to an eventual 20th for a single point.
His Revo Husqvarna team-mate Mel Pocock, second in the series just three points behind Barr at the start of the moto, battled to sixth place which saw him drop to second in the series, four points behind runaway race winner Mathys Boisrame who now leads the championship.
Fellow Frenchman Tom Vialle took second place from Roan Van De Moosdijk and Velentin Teillet. Brian Moreau took fifth on the last lap after nipping past Pocock.
James Dunn took his two-stroke GL12 KTM to 10th with Josh Spinks, second in the British round last week, 12th and Clarke 16th. Todd Kellett was 21st, Ashton Dickinson 29th and Dylan Woodock 32nd.
