The event held around Hungarian city of Vesprem was not only the round of FIA World Cup for Cross Country Bajas, but a round of FIM Bajas World Cup too. Hungarian event was a season finale for bikers competing in FIM series.

Adam Tomiczek (Husqvarna FE 450 Rally) won as many as three out of four special stages. Cieszyn-born rider finished 2 minutes and 37 seconds ahead of Slovak Stefan Svitko, who has Dakar podium under his belt. All in all, there were five Poles in top five. Second ORLEN Team representative - Maciej Giemza (Husqvarna FE 450 Rally) took third place in his maiden outing in Hungarian Baja. Jakub Piatek (Husqvarna FE 450 Rally) came fifth and clinched runner-up spot in 2019 FIM Bajas World Cup. It was Frenchman Benjamin Melot (KTM 450 EXC) who won overall classification of the cup.

- After first leg I had just 30 seconds advantage over Stefan Svitko. During leg two I was fast and consistent on both stages, which I won. The rally was very fast, while the route was very demanding. We ran after cars, so the roads were full of large stones. Nevertheless, I kept the pace and I am very satisfied with the result - said Adam Tomiczek.

- I am very happy to finish on the podium. I was my first outing here and I liked the event. I had a trouble-free run, motorcycle was reliable, and my team did a great job - said Maciej Giemza.

Another Pole - Pawel Otwinowski (Yamaha Raptor) finished third in quad category.
