Going into the final MX1 and Open class moto the American's were behind Germany, who at the hands of MX2 rider Ken Roczen and Max Nagl were in the prime spot.

After Andrew Short was dispatched to the dirt by winner Ben Townley in the previous MX2 and Open class race the Denver native came out firing in the final and with team leader Ryan Dungey went 1-2 to take a seven point nations win over Belgium. With Nagl crashing out of the final race the Germans were left with third place.

Australia's fortunes were on a roller coaster for most of the day. Brett Metcalfe took a third and a fifth to give his team a solid footing.

Jay Marmont finished 18-10. While it doesn't look good on paper the Australian Champion was running in eight in his first race until American Trey Canard landed on him in the last lap whilst he was running eight. Had that not happened even with Dean Ferris's 18-27 result the team would have tied for third.

The race winners were Ryan Dungey (MX1+MX2), Ben Townley (MX2+Open) and Ryan Dungey (MX1+Open).

Class winner were Dungey in the MX1 class with his two wins, Gemany's Ken Roczen with and impressive 6-3 results as the MX2 class rider and Belgian Clement Desalle won the Open class with 4-3 scores.
