Currently 43-points ahead of Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP's Gautier Paulin in the Championship Standings, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP's Jeremy Seewer is expected to secure his position as vice World Champion in the first race of the weekend. Because anything can happen in racing, Paulin still has an outside shot at finishing second overall with the result still being mathematically possible. Although, it is not the target as the Frenchman only has 11-points over the rider in fourth and is fully focused on his personal feeling on the bike and on the track where his main goal is to clinch the bronze medal.
Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP's Arnaud Tonus is determined to finish his season on a high note as he looks to bounce back from a difficult weekend in Turkey three-days ago. The Swiss rider is fifth in the Championship Standings, 26-points shy of the rider in fourth.
After celebrating a sixth podium finish this season, Monster Energy Kemea Yamaha MX2's Jago Geerts hopes to carry that same impressive momentum into the final round of the 2019 MX2 World Championship. The 19-year-old Belgian is currently third in the championship with a 10-point advantage over the rider in fourth. He is determined to lock-down the bronze medal at the all-new track and venue in China.
