Dougie Lampkin had to settle for second place at the French round of the World Trials championship despite getting even marks with winner and fellow Repsol Montesa rider Takahisa Fujinami.
The current world champion was leading but lost a mark with only one section to go leaving him equal with Fujinami. But under FIM rules the rider with the most amount of clean runs in a round takes the win in the event of even points.
Fujinami's win let him increase his championship lead over Lampkin to eleven points.
Adam Raga just managed to hold on to a third place finish on his Gas Gas, again beating Albert Cabestany's Beta on the number of clean runs.
Jeroni Fajardo took fifth place on his Gas Gas while Marc Freixa took sixth on the third Repsol Montesa.
