In Lombok, Glenn Coldenhoff and Kay Karssemakers were in action during the twelfth Grand Prix of the season. The 33-year-old MXGP rider showed up strongly but still misses a podium spot. The 20-year-old Karssemakers again had to deal with the bad luck devil that has continued to haunt him in all his matches. Both Dutchmen look back on last weekend's match.

Glenn Coldenhoff:
“This weekend was much better than the previous one. I was second in the free practice and third in the timed practice on Saturday. Although my start in the qualifying race was not great, I still managed to come back to sixth place. On Sunday morning I felt good again, I was third in the warm-up, but I missed both starts in the races. That made it really difficult. In the first moto I felt pretty good and still came back to sixth place. In the second moto I was a bit upset and finished eighth. At least I have the speed for one lap, we have seen that in all training, but it is even more important to maintain that speed for 30 minutes. We made some changes to the bike this weekend and that was an improvement, but we are not yet where we want to be. We want to fight for the podium and have to keep working to achieve that. There are still many great races to come.”

Kay Karssemakers:
“It was not an easy weekend here in Indonesia. In the first moto I had a pretty good start and was able to hang with the guys in the top 10 for the first ten minutes. That was pretty good, but unfortunately I got some arm pain and dropped a few places back to thirteenth. The first laps of the second race were again quite good, but then I had a small crash and started having problems. That was a bit of a shame, but we are working hard as a team and have already set our sights on Loket in two weeks. Thanks to everyone, see you then!”
