Debise and Manzi both made strong starts off the line, slotting into second and third in the early stages of the race, but Manzi slipped back to sixth while Debise charged forward. Keen to keep hold of his title chances, Manzi quickly pushed forward again and was back into 3rd by Lap 3. He tried hard to close the gap to rival Nicolo Bulega and fellow Yamaha rider Debise out front, but to no avail and he had to opt for a solid third-place finish. However, out front the Frenchman kept the pressure on until the final flag and was elated to bring himself and his team another podium on French soil.
Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team) had another very strong day, fighting it out in the Top 5 for the majority of the hot and challenging race. The Italian crossed the line in sixth, his best result since joining the championship in Most.
