Brit Jens -beken from the Netherlands was still hoping to overthrow Brenda from the throne, but Brenda always defended her lead and relegated Brit to second place in the championship. Amber Simons, who was 3rd in the European Championship before the race in Amriswil, was unlucky and could not finish the first run and could not compete in the last two runs. So after 3 good races the Dutch Cythia Swets took over this third place.

A rebounding year and championship for MX2
The race of Allaire has upset a situation that was almost certain.

But as the devil so plays, the two Germans had to abandon the race with a defective clutch lying in third place after 4 laps. Thus, the point yield was not exactly high to endanger Boller

Hello dear Organisations, drivers and friends of IMBA,
At the congress last year the countiers decided the class MX2 youth only for 2 stroke machines. Now we see that the decision not realy works in the reality. The most of riders in the countries do have 4 stroke machines for the class MX2youth.
The IMBA Board would like to help all Organizers to have full start gates and a good race, and also a better Championship.
We from IMBA Board cancel the rules for this class, "to ride only with 2 stroke machines".
So it is free to ride with 2 stroke or 4 stroke machines, and the age from 13. until 17. years.
We hope to see more riders in Greena Denmark, Overloon Netherlands, Weilerswist Germany.

| 17/04/2016 | IMBA European Championship Open-class Grenaa DK|
The night to the race Sunday had brought in Grenaa plenty of water, but the course had been well placed in the morning by members of the Motocross Club Grenaa in excess. So went with Class 85 Youth organizing pünkltlich at 9:00 of equip. At least came no more water from the top and the sand on the track was the to drive accordingly. For lunch out came the sun.
Unfortunately, few young drivers had taken it upon themselves to Grenaa, but also in the open class. The Swiss rider was missing entirely, from Belgium was only eienr arrived and even the organizers had used only an array of 4 (instead of 7) participants. Thus one saw only 26 riders at the start hedges.
The best time to put the Dutchman Michael Hool in the Open class on the list.
