In the second race Thomas Chareyre had to earn the victory, the French rider is caught by two of you opponents at the start. However, thanks to a great tactical race he launches the decisive attack with two laps to go and takes the win. Another great double.

Alex Serafini commented on the race: "We are very happy with the work Thomas is doing, the weekend has been very difficult because of the weather conditions. Chareyre is in great form and in a championship so short you cannot afford to make mistakes. We are saddened by the injured Diego, hopefully he can get back in the saddle as soon as possible."
