  • After recording the pole position in qualifying on Friday afternoon and maintaining the lead at the end of the qualifying heats, Marius Barry-Berg (Norway) also won the final on Sunday afternoon. However, it wasn't all that simple for the Norwegian, battling first with Max Walton (Australia) and then with Hugo Martí (Spain) until the checkered flag.

  • Walton is Barry-Berg's main opponent in the early stages of the race and even manages to overtake the Norwegian, but the Australian makes a mistake due to the asphalt made slippery by a light rain.

  • In the second part of the final, Martí – now in second place – tries in every way to overtake Barry-Berg, but in the end he closes behind him with a delay of 0.482 seconds. Walton, on the other hand, conquers the lowest step of the podium.

  • Brilliant performance for Lisa Billard (France), capable of appearing in ninth position on the starting grid and even finishing fourth in the final. Fifth place for Ryutaro Sakai (Japan), followed by Santino Panetta (Argentina), sixth, and Markas Silkunas (Lithuania), seventh.

  • Klara Kowalczyk (Poland) closed the race in eighth position, while Romeo Haagh (Denmark) and Lorenzo Campos (Angola) completed two good comebacks with ninth and tenth place respectively.

  • Arthur Broughan (New Zealand) crosses the finish line in seventh position, but a 5 second penalty for an incorrectly positioned nose puts him back to 11th. Great pity for Wojciech Woda (Poland): game four, the Polish woman ends up KO after a contact with Harry Bartle (United Kingdom), then disqualified by the stewards.
