The EMX85 class was dominated by home hero Riccardo Pini (KTM). The SW leader took full points by winning both of the races. The challenge for the podium was a matter between Aron Katona (KTM) and the second best rider of SW zone Nicolò Alvisi (GasGas). They shared one second and one third each, but with the second round being the deciding one, the Hungarian came up on top.
