In MXGP, SM Action Racing Team Yuasa Battery MXGP’s Alberto Forato rode superbly at home, in front of the Italian crowd cheering for him the whole way through. The Italian took his first MXGP race win of his career. Behind him a raging battle went on between the front two riders in the Championship. Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jorge Prado got the advantage and finished second while Kawasaki Racing Team’s Romain Febvre settled for third. 

In MX2, the excellent Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Simon Laengenfelder displayed a clever race to win his fourth RAM Qualifying Race of the season in front of Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 Team’s Jago Geerts who is really getting back to his best with the second place and Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Lucas Coenen who stayed consistent to finish third.

The day was closed by an exciting Paddock Show which saw the winners of the RAM Qualifying Race coming up on stage alongside the Team Italy MXoN, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Andrea Adamo, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Mattia Guadagnini and race winner Alberto Forato. The public also got treated to many Motocross Legends and former riders who will also take part in the Parade of the Legends Sunday morning. There were even more surprises for the fans with the presentation of the Maglia Azzurra to the public who erupted in joy.
