Laier wins again in Women's MX2
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.
