Tim Gajser took the overall victory in the sun-kissed British GP despite throwing away the second moto lead near the end of the moto. He’d won the opener when leader Jeremy Seewer fell. Then was leading race two until he also crashed, remounting behind Jorge Prado.
Gajser hounded the Spaniard but couldn’t make a pass, taking second which was good enough to take the overall and lead in the championship. Prado, fourth in the opener, was second overall with Seewer third.
Ben Watson fell and landed hard in practice, banging his head. He rode sensibly and took 12th overall.
GasGas ace Simon Laengenfelder took a double win in MX2 after former world champ Tom Vialle crashed while leading moto two. He remounted to finish third while Jago Geerts, fourth in the opener, was a close second. Conrad Mewse had bad starts and took a disappointing 12th overall.
