Thomas Chareyre wins GP of Croatia

All the attention was captured by the usual group of riders, who are in the leading positions since the beginning of the World Championship and are well-intentioned to gain enough points in the classifications to win this competition. Among them the French Thomas Chareyre (TM Factory Racing), who has won all the three races today with a determination hardly seen before.

The French, former World Champion, thus increases his leadership in the classifications, but has difficulties to detach from his rivals, like the Finnish Mauno Hermunen (TM SHR), who - if it wasn't for his problem at the left wrist due to the bad fall of yesterday - could have done better than the three second positions he did today.

Third position on the podium for the Italian Ivan Lazzarini (HM Honda Racing), who could improve himself in the three races and stabilize his position in the world standings.
Fourth position for the defending World Champion, the French Adrien Chareyre (Aprilia Fast Wheels), who has arrived twice third and had problems with his bike in the third race. Last for the top five is then the British Matthew Winstanley (TM SHR), who has followed the leading group all the time.
