Naasz went straight into the lead and held it to the line, finishing ahead of Austrian Luca Dallago with Canada’s Scott Croxall, the defending world champion, third. France’s Tristan Dugerdil tried to gatecrash the podium with a dive on the line but just failed.
With three races left in the season, Naasz tops the title race with Croxall second.
