After qualifying a close second he swept majestically through the first turn in moto one to lead already by more than three seconds at the end of the opening lap and, his KX handling superbly around the rugged track, he moved relentlessly clear of his chasers with a succession of fastest laps. By half-distance he was fifteen seconds clear and could cruise to victory for his fourth win in the last five motos. The twenty-five point maximum also saw him advance to third in the point standings. An immaculate start-finish repeat performance in race two saw the teenager complete his second consecutive maximum day to end the championship just ten points shy of the series silver medal after a difficult start to the season.
Lucas Coenen: “Today was another really good day for me, taking the holeshot and leading all the way both motos, same like last week in Arco. I had to push hard in the second moto because the guys behind me were riding hard too but we took that one also in the end; the track was slippery and bumpy but my BUD bike handled it perfectly. I just missed second in the championship by a few points; it’s a pity about my DNFs at the first two rounds but everything has been perfect since then. “
