12th in the overall for Jeremy Van Horebeek. Antonio Cairoli was also forced to miss the Palembang race due to a shoulder injury he sustained in Latvia last month.
Tony Cairoli: “It is sad to finish the championship this way and it hasn’t happened too many times in my career. When I tried to ride last week I knew I had some problems but I wanted to stay positive about the recovery. I had more scans in Belgium and the injury was much worse than we thought so they told me to have surgery right away and it was the best solution to get healthy again in the fastest way. Thanks to the team and to the fans for the support. I hope to visit a few races before the end of the season and will now concentrate on getting better.”
In the MX2 class the overall victory went to Jorge Prado, who further increased his lead in the standings. Excellent performance for Tom Vialle who finished in second place.
Jorge Prado: "I was feeling good all weekend, the first race after the crash was quite difficult, but I could make it. I messed up the second race a bit, but I got to second and another GP victory. At the second race I had a good start, got into first, but my teammate was pushing and passed, and I got him at the end. The lap times were short and I struggled a bit. I am just happy with the win for the moment and I’m looking forward for next week.”
