Not that we can be said for the runner-up as the race for second position is still battled currently between Clayton Camilleri on a KTM who is occupying the second place in this class with 279 points while David Dimech on Honda is following close to Camilleri with 264 points and with the chance to continue advancing a position for the Runner-up title.

Other rankings in the Motocross where we see that in Class B Ryan Faenza on a Yamaha motorbike  is front leading and is expected to be declared winner in this classification on next Saturday. Faenza is occupying this position with 306 points and is followed by Mark Mamo with 144 points on his Yamaha motorcycle.

Johnson is followed by Karl Micallef on a Ford Fiesta with 163 points while the third place holder so far is Terence Azzopardi on an Opel Corsa with 141 points.
