The winner of the mud fest was Shaun Simpson in the 450 class. During Monsoon season in Indonesia it rains every day and often for weeks at a time. Guess what? That is exactly what it did.

Jeremy Seewer went 1-2 to take the MX2 overall. The mud may have been a disaster, but it’s likely that the flay featureless track wouldn’t have amounted to much either way.

Davy Pootjes looking very clean. The track was a weird mix to relatively firm dirt followed by sippy holes and mud bogs.

Off the start of the first and only moto of the MX1 class. The second moto was canceled due to bad weather and mud bog track conditions. 

The podium of the MX1 class from left to right: Glenn Coldenhoff, Shaun Simpson, Clement Desalle.

The start of the MX2 race. The second moto was red flagged due to steady rain and a series of almost impassable bog sections that captured lots of riders. 

The podium of the 250 class from left to right: Samuele Bernardini, Jeremy Seewer, Brian Bogers.  

Julien Lieber finished 4th place, but came out of the trip to Indonesia with the points lead in the 250 class. The next stop is Argentina in two weeks, which as fly-away races go is a real GP track with actual fans on the sidelines.

Jeffrey Herlings and a Fiat fight for position in a hail storm of mud.  

Rui Goncalves had his best day in years with a 5th in the only 450 moto. 

Belgian Clement Desalle gained points on Cairoli with his 2nd place finish. 

Glenn Coldenhoff is a Dutch sand specialist, but he had a good day in the mud. 

Antonio Cairoli finished 4th and still has an 8-point lead for the 450 championship after two races. 

The Italian rider, Samuele Bernardini, placed second overall in the MX2 class on a TM 250MX.
