In an incredible final Roger Rinderknecht has taken the win and become the new World 4X Champion, just in time to announce his retirement. Up against Tomas Slavik, David Graf, and Michael Mechura it looked like it was going to be an incredibly tight race. But moments after the start Slavik got tangled with Graf and they both went down hard before the first corner, leaving Rinderknecht and Mechura to battle it out for the win. Roger had the lead from the first corner and never let it go.
In the womens race the only real surprise was that Melissa Buhl was disqualifed from the Final for allegedly crossing a lane line. This after she'd been told she had made the final. Celine Gros took her place in the final while Buhl went to the small final. Anneke Beerten went into the lead straight out of the gate but she had to fight off Romana Labounkova for a good part of the race. Anita Molcik crashed out about half way through, leaving Celine Gros to place third.
