Gurecky gets the hammer down in an Oschersleben masterclass

In the last couple of laps disaster struck for Luciano once again. Heading off track for the second time, the Belgian rider shuffled way back down the order upon re-joining, with Kocourek able to take back second and secure himself a safer gap behind himself to boot. Phommara, meanwhile, had continued his charge and swept back round the outside of Hosciuc to lead the fight for the podium on the penultimate lap as well.
