Behind the scenes with Yamaha in the MXGP of Lombok

A bet has been made! Karlis Reisulis made his debut as a Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 rider at the MXGP of Indonesia on the beautiful island of Lombok, but the funniest moment was the bet the 18-year-old Latvian made with Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP’s Calvin Vlaanderen, in which, if Calvin wins one of the two MXGP rounds in Indonesia, Karlis will have to shave his legs. In contrast, if Karlis makes the podium, Calvin needs to grow out the hair on his legs for the next month.

Calvin came close, powering his YZ450F to his first podium finish of the 2024 Motocross World Championship season!
