Three riders were on four faults after four rounds and the meals were decided after an exiting jump-off. Holger Hetzel and Legioner 2 (Limbus x Calido I) were first to go and delivered a safe clear round in 49,64 seconds. Next out was Jörg Oppermann and Che Guevara 17 (Concept x Rebel Z) who crossed the finish line having the fastest time of the day at 44.73, but four faults placed them behind Hetzel.
