In truth, no one had an an­swer to his awe­some dis­play of rid­ing. The near­est chal­lenger was Gas Gas new boy Jaime Busto who fin­ished sec­ond, fol­lowed by his fel­low Span­ish Gas Gas team rider Jeroni Fajardo mak­ing it an all-Span­ish podium. The event had started in sun­shine, but at the close of the first of the two laps, the rain shower turned into a down­pour, which changed the na­ture of the haz­ards. The re­sult still re­mains the same though, and once again as in 2017, the ques­tion on ev­ery­one’s lips is who can stop Bou?
