Followed by Yamaha rider Ferruccio Zachi just on his tail, with ASA United GasGas Brit rider Bobby Bruce sitting around fifth during the opening laps of the first moto.

However Bobby then made his way up to second place, with Husqvarna rider Cas Valk following just behind as Championship leader Lata sat down in forth, and eventually finished up in sixth position, which was all he had to do to win the EMX125 Championship in Mantova.
