Gajser and Prado take the Indonesian Win

The first weekend of the two back to back rounds in Indonesia has been completed and it was one of the most interesting races of the season. In the end Team HRC’s Tim Gajser and Red Bull KTM Factory’s Jorge Prado have continued their success with a Grand Prix victory each in MXGP and MX2. In the very tough heat of Indonesia, the two red plate holders also build on their series points leads.

Around the very unique circuit in Palembang, both Gajser and Prado didn’t have it all their own way, both losing a race, Gajser going 1-2 and Prado also 1-2, eventually they did enough to bring the red plates to Semarang, Indonesia next weekend with a confident feeling.

The 11thround of the FIM Motocross World Championship started off with a typical opening ceremony that took place at the MXGP Skybox which included a traditional dance and a performance from Indonesian drum players which together with the warm welcome from  Youthstream CEO David Luongo, FIM/CMS Director Antonio Portela, IMI President Sadikin Aksa, South Sumatra Governor Herman Deru SH MM, Pangdam II Sriwijaya Major General TNI and Military Chief of South Sumatra M. Irwan, Chief Police of South Sumatra Inspector General Pol. Firli and Chairman of MXGP of Indonesia Organizer Irwansyah officially open the MXGP of Indonesia.
