Toth took a relatively easy win on Saturday , but had to work hard for Sunday ’ s win . On Sunday , Michael won the first two cross tests and held the lead by just under two seconds going into the final test of the day – an Enduro test . Toth had been fast all weekend in the Enduro test and despite both riders going down in the test , the KTM rider emerged with the test win by three seconds , sealing Sunday ’ s win and the overall win .
Toth won nine tests in all , five on Saturday and four on Sunday . Meanwhile , Michael topped three tests over the weekend , one test on Saturday and two tests on Sunday .
“ The cross tests were close all day on Sunday and I thought I had a big advantage coming into today with the enduro test ,” said Toth . “ I rode well , but everyone just stepped it up on Sunday and the times got way closer . Me and Layne went down to the wire . He beat me by a second or two in the cross test , and then I ’ d pull him a little bit in the enduro test . Going into that last one , he had a second and a half on me . He ended up going down at the end . I saw him a turn ahead and I was like , ‘ I just got to ride it in , I have it .’ Then , of course , I dump it on a root . I just had to sprint to the finish . It was a close race . I was able to grab that test win and just barely beat Layne for the day and the overall .”
