In moto 1, Dungey took the win after a three-racer battle that was easily one of the most thrilling races in recent history. Dungey came off the gate and was in third as he settled in to study the racers ahead of him. As he took note of the fastest lines on the track, he prepared to make his move. With 10 minutes left in the moto, Dungey used the renowned power of the RM-Z450 to make a pass into second place. He diced with the leader until the last lap of the race when his dedication to physical training and his mental agility let Dungey capitalise on a mistake made by the leader.
