The Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings has dominated the opening moto of the MXGP class in France. Herlings took the holeshot and never looked back. Clement Desalle was following him in the beginning of the race but after a few laps Herlings started to pull away and won the race with an advantage of five seconds over Desalle.
Antonio Cairoli lost a lot of time to take over third from Glenn Coldenhoff. When he made the pass stick he started to close down the gap to Desalle. In the final lap he tried to pass the Belgian but unfortunately he ran out of time and ended up third.
Tim Gajser came home in fourth place and Glenn Coldenhoff was rounding out the top five.
