Grant continued his climb up the leaderboard, despite being faced with a difficult and constantly changing track. When the gate dropped, he settled into 12th but had his eyes on another top 10. When the riders came around for the halfway point, Grant had already moved into it. He used the entire race to make his move, saving it for the last lap to slide into eighth, scoring his best performance this season as a fill-in rider for Aaron Plessinger.
