Get ready for an Indonesian mudder!

Get ready for an Indonesian mudder!

Onlookers tend to have more questions than answers when the first round of a series concludes, but round two tends to offer up some clarity. That will not be the case this weekend, however, as the Indonesian Grand Prix seems as though it will be on the muddiest races we have seen in years. Prepare for the madness with our regular ‘Race Control' feature.

Useful Information

– Where in the world is Indonesia? It is an Asian nation that has a population of two hundred and fifty million people. We are on the island of Bangka, however, and in the city of Pangkal Pinang. We're seven hours ahead of the United Kingdom here, six hours in front of mainland Europe and fifteen ahead of Southern California. The timetable above is based on local time, so adjust it accordingly.

Pauls Jonass has the red plate this week, but not for the first time (ConwayMX)

– A perk of these flyaway events was to avoid the poor weather that is battering Europe. Pangkal Pinang, however, has been hit by countless thunderstorms in recent weeks and, consequently, we are in store for a mudder. Prepare for carnage!

– You, the fans, can feel more immersed in the action this year, thanks to Fox MX Manager. The fantasy game, which is based around the FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time, allows you to be a team manager and sign riders that fit into your large budget. Great prizes are available at each stop, like signed jerseys and tickets to the Motocross of Nations! You will also find a guide to round two of the game here.

– How can you watch the action as it happens this year? A comprehensive television guide will be available soon, but MXGP-TV is a great alternative to that. The online system, which requires you to pay a small fee, also streams the qualifying races each week! If neither of those options work for you, just follow our live updates across the weekend.
