Ter Schure and Fransen won at the Fuji International Speedway with force majeure ahead of compatriots Tristan Bangma and Patrick Bos. The bronze went to Alexandre Lloveras and pilot Corentin Ermenault from France.
Ter Schure and Fransen, who earlier in the week after material breakdown only just missed the gold in the time trial, took off early in the race. The duo’s lead only increased in the Japanese rain.
Bangma and Bos rode away from the chasing group. They arrived at more than 5 minutes from Ter Schure and Fransen. The French duo was still more than a minute behind.
