The KFJ category also ended with a nail-biting overtake. Daniel Ticktum (FA/Vortex) was the protagonist of a comeback which saw the Brit move past the leader Gabriel Aubry (Birel/TM) in the closing stages.
“I cannot believe I won” said Ticktum. “The early part of the weekend was quite difficult, Qualifying was not the best and the second heat was also somewhat troublesome. Nevertheless I managed to start the Prefinal from row 4, I had a very good start and closed in 4th place. In the Final I did my very best, in lap 2 I was already in 2nd place but it was difficult to stay with the leader. Thankfully he made a slight mistake with two laps to go and I got past him to grab the win, it was very tight but this is the Margutti.”
