From the whirlwind of action across the Spanish circuit Tanel Leok took his LS Motors Honda with Scorpion MidSoft 32 front and MidHard 454 rear to victory in the fifth round with 7th place in the first moto and then conquering the second outing across the rough hard-pack. The Estonian was the sole runner of a different rear compound to tackle the rutty terrain as the next five classified riders opted for the Scorpion MidSoft 32. Second place belonged to factory Yamaha rider David Philippaerts, who finished in front of KTM’s Max Nagl and Antonio Cairoli; the Sicilian losing any chance of the overall win with his mistake and crash in the first moto.
