There has been some mixup over the MX2 results from the MXGP of Indonesia, with conflicting information that has caused confusion for race fans.

The second MX2 race of the day was red flagged at past the halfway race distance and Youthstream posted the results on their official standings page as if the race results stood – by the rules of the sport, that makes sense. However, the overall results and standings showed zero points for moto two. Later, the results from the second moto were removed from the official results page. Appearing to confirm that the second moto results did not carry championship points.

Many thought that TM Racing’s Samuele Bernardini had been denied his moto two victory.


Youthstream has now sought to clarify the matter with a statement that confirms that the results from MX2 race two stand.

Youthstream statement:

Due to the extreme weather conditions at the MXGP of Indonesia the Event Management came to a decision to end the MX2 race 2 prematurely and cancel MXGP race 2.

For the overall of MX2 (counting Race 1 and Race 2) Suzuki World MX2 Team’s Jeremy Seewer came out victorious followed by TM Racing’s Samuele Bernadini and LRT’s Julien Lieber.

In MXGP race 1, results were used for overall classification, this secured the win for Wilvo Yamaha MXGP’s Shaun Simpson, second for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Glenn Coldenhoff, while Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle rounded out the podium. Both Youthstream and the FIM now look forward to racing in 2 weeks time at the MXGP of Patagonia Argentina.


When the corrected official results are made available we’ll update our full results page here.
