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.
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.
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.
