Strijbos was second to CAS Honda's Ken de Dycker in race one, in which KTM's Jonathan Barragan was third, but claimed the overall with a dominant win in race two ahead of Pourcel and KTM's David Philippaerts.
"It was all good today, especially the second moto because I felt really strong and not tired at all," said Strijbos. "The first race was quite positive but after I fought back against Ken I had some arm-pump and it was over as I had to drop the speed. The track was good but hard with the mud and to deal with the jumps. When it is dry it should be one of the best circuits around. I just want to keep racing now and see where I finish in the championship."
Ramon fell on the opening lap of race one, but recovered to eighth, then suffered similar first lap misfortune in race two - but this time at least reached fourth at the chequered flag.
"I wasn't a first lap specialist today!" admitted Ramon, who will now start the last two GPs 12 points behind Coppins. "My start in the first moto was not so good and I tried to do the double jump going into the back part of the circuit but I hadn't attempted it before. I wanted to get to the front quickly but made an error of judgement, ran wide and crashed. I hurt my wrist and had a lot of pain the whole moto but tried my best. Eighth place wasn't in the plan.
"In the second moto I had a good start and was third but I was riding up a climb behind somebody and hit a stone that made me wobble and go off the track. I ended up in the green fence and had to be really careful coming back that I did not get it around the chain. I was last again on the first lap and thought 'this cannot be possible!' Again I had to try so hard but I had some good lines and could reach fourth which was pretty positive. I'm looking forward to Donington Park now because the championship is tight and if I can keep on making the lap-times and riding with that kind of speed it will be very close."
Coppins is hopeful of being able to ride for the first time this week, since fracturing his shoulder in the Czech Republic, and plans to race at the brand new Donington Park circuit this weekend - although the Kiwi's level of fitness is unknown.
