In all the classes at least two pilots have the option to take the title. In SMOpen Francesc Cucharrera and Israel Escalera were the top contenders but the big battle that everyone expected did not take place.
Israel Escalera was injured in the Supermoto of Nations at Portimao on 6 October and did not compete in the race. Israel will undergo surgery in the coming weeks.
