Presented with a jumpy, lengthy, fast-paced circuit at an all-new location in Indonesia, Coldenhoff and Seewer arrived at the Lombok circuit optimistic for good results. The brand-new track gave a decent first impression with its soft surface and ‘fun’ track layout.
In Race One, Seewer went bar-to-bar with Romain Febvre around turn one but was quickly shuffled back to fourth after a frantic first lap. Coldenhoff got off to a top-five start and put in a phenomenal ride to finish third after capitalizing on the errors of Seewer and Ruben Fernandez, while mistakes spoiled Seewer’s hopes of a top-three finish and he ultimately secured fourth after a fast and furious battle with Fernandez.
In Race Two, Coldenoff powered his YZ450FM to an incredible Fox Holeshot, his third of the season, and fended off Seewer's relentless last lap pursuit to claim his 30th career podium.
Despite an exceptional performance, Seewer had to settle for fourth.
The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP team will now return to Europe for a weekend off before heading to Loket, Czech Republic, for the 12th round, which will take place on July 15th and 16th.
