The second round of this spectacular 2008 FIM Snowcross World Championship season took place yesterday on the Finnish course of Tuuri, in the South-West of Finland, 150 km North of Tampere.

Swedish Emil Ohman, winner of round one last weekend at Oppdal, Norway, took a step forward in the World Championship standings by winning both heats for a full score overall win here at Tuuri.

Lynx fellow rider and defending Champion Peter Ericson, who missed Oppdal due to illness, rode to a solid second overall collecting a total of 40 World Championship points, courtesy of fourth and a second place in the motos.

Marcus Evensson completed the podium in third place, being at his first appearance on the rostrum in 2008. Janne Jurvelin and Viktor Stenman, third overall in Oppdal, rounded off the top five.
