In the E3 class, Holcombe topped the division followed by Christophe Nambotin (Gas Gas Factory Team) and Anthony Geslin (Beta), as the E2 category saw Remes emerge victorious over Loic Larrieu (Outsiders Yamaha Racing) and Thomas Oldrati (Honda Redmoto World Enduro Team). Freeman was fastest over Jamie McCanney (Outsider Yamaha Racing) and Antoine Basset (Gas Gas Factory Team) in the E1 class.
