Hampel, instead of catching Madsen, had to fight for securing second position, because Robert Lambert was putting pressure right behind his back.

Emil Sayfutdinov’s drop was a big surprise – in Daugavpils, Russian announced fighting for medal, however he left Chorzów as the 6th rider of the series.
