Fischbach said: “I wasn’t sure if I was fit enough to battle for the podium as I have been ill for over 3 weeks. During first practice i found out that this track suited me perfect, and with the run only being under 2 minutes I was hoping to bring home a good run. During my race run i was on the edge, but had a perfect run, which resulted in a win by over 0.7 seconds. Just smiles from there, crazy that I won every round of the series this year."

Johannes took the win in front of Fillip Polc, Hardline winner Bernard Kerr and King of Crankworx Tomas Slavik.
