Coming in first place on Friday and finishing second on Saturday allowed him to clinch the Supercross title in Herning (Denmark)
Carl faced off in Herning against an old rival, the local favorite Max Pedersen (DK), who has already established himself as one of Carl’s chief competitors in the SX5 Class (50 cc). Against a backdrop of 8,000 fans, the two youngsters fought a hair-raising duel. Due to an unforced error of Pedersen Carl was able to pull through for the win on Friday.
On Saturday it just wasn’t enough anymore. The eleven-year-old Dane was simply in better form and won the race fair and square with a five second lead. The second place finisher from Friday, Lucas Bruhn (DK), kept getting better and better with each race and finished just behind Carl to take third place.
