Currently perched at the edge of the championship's top-three and only 3 points shy of fourth place, the Swiss sensation heads into this round ready to earn more championship points. He is currently fifth in the championship chase, just 14 points behind third place.
Simultaneously, Glenn Coldenhoff is keen to make his mark this round. After narrowly missing the box last weekend, the ‘259’ is determined to bounce back with a podium finish in Lombok. He is currently sixth in the Championship Standings.
Joining the MXGP riders at the brand-new track and venue, the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 team is fired up and ready as the gripping MX2 title fight unfolds. Thibault Benistant is hot on the tail of MX2 Championship leader Andrea Adamo, trailing by 5-points. Meanwhile, Jago Geerts is aiming to bolster his position after his impressive return to the podium in Sumbawa following wrist surgery. Benistant is second in the MX2 rankings, while Geerts is fourth.
At the same time, Rick Elzinga, embarking on his first Asian Grand Prix adventure, is eager to gain as much experience as he can from the Indonesian double-header. He is currently 12th in the standings.
