KTM-supported rider Steffi Laier was a real crowd pleaser in her home race in Teutschenthal, Germany, rocketing to a 3-1 result in the two races of Round Four of the women's MX2 World Championship. The first race was closely fought with just two second between first and third place, but she was outstanding in race two, finishing 18 seconds ahead of second placed Maria Franke, also of Germany.
Third from Four Round Victories

It was Laier's third outright victory from four rounds and some compensation for having missed the opening round in Bulgaria.  She is now second in the championship with one round to go and has closed the gap to leader Livia Lancelot to just 20 points.  

Bid for title

Laier still has to stay ahead of countrywoman Franke, who is on equal points but with another fifty points up for grabs in the final round and having showed she is in peak form, she can definitely make a bid for the title.
