Mikkel Haarup and Triumph on the podium once again – MXGP of Lombok

MXPG Lombok - Indonesia 2024, Lombok Rider:

Monster Energy Triumph Racing’s Mikkel Haarup has placed a fine second overall at round 12 of the FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship. The exceptional result is a career-best finish for the Dane and the TF 250-X.

One week on from a largely successful first visit to the Lombok race track for MXGP round 11, Monster Energy Triumph Racing returned to find a revised circuit that ran in the opposite direction

Haarup fought really hard both weekend. In the first GP he came short out of the podium for 1-point. However the second weekend paid-off and the Dane earned a well-deserved second overall. His second podium appareance this season and third for Triumph.

Mikkel Haarup: “That’s the second round in Indonesia done and it feels great to be back on the podium! I battled hard for every position in both motos to go 4-3 for third overall so yeah, it’s been a great trip for myself and the team. The team did an amazing job with the bikes, and everything went perfectly so I want to say a huge thanks to everyone involved and now we look forward to heading home before the next GP.”

Vincent Bereni – Monster Energy Triumph Racing Team Manager: “The two rounds in Lombok have been quite challenging for the team, the riders, and the bikes, but we’ve been able to secure great results. For Mikkel to be back on the podium is really good and we’re getting closer to that first win. It’s a really positive result for the team and the atmosphere among the team throughout this trip has been exceptional. For Camden, it’s not easy to come back to racing after missing seven weeks as the pace is so high, so his seventh overall is kind of like a win. He’ll keep working hard and building and he did a great job today.”
