Kolberg leads Air Namibia Inter-Series
Ronnie Adams (NAM) on his Suzuki won the holeshot and took the lead, but had to surrender to Ross Branch after 4 laps. Ronnie was now eager to stay in 2nd place but in the end had to give way to Benjamin Kolberg. Tommi Gous in the meantime passed Steffi Laier (Germany), who however stayed second best 125er rider in this field.
In the 2nd heat Adams again won the holeshot and Ross crashed. When he got his bike going again, the pack was already gone. And that is when Kolberg grabbed his chance. On his K’lling-Yamaha he got past Ronnie and kept the lead up to the finish line. Gous, Laier and Keith Weaver battled for positions behind Adams. Steffi Laier on her KTM fought well and reached the finish ahead of Branchfor a well-deserved 4th place.
