Fired up for Sepang and the last stop before the season final

An intense month with three races outside of Europe lie behind Marcel Schrötter and Xavi Vierge. After Thailand, Japan and Australia, the Dynavolt Intact GP riders are now highly motivated to have another successful weekend in Malaysia before returning home.

Before the finals, which take place in Valencia in two weeks, Marcel Schrötter and Xavi Vierge want to score points for the World Championship again, because theoretically, both still have the chance to catch up to fourth place.

The demanding Sepang International Circuit, with its hot temperatures and high humidity will make it anything but easy for the Intact GP duo. But the Kalex riders are ready and fit to face the challenge.

Marcel Schrötter arrives to Malaysia as World Championship seventh with 131 points. He certainly would have had what it takes to fight for the podium in Australia, but a technical problem at the start prevented him from doing so. After tackling the race from the back of the field, he managed to become a fabulous ninth, just six seconds behind he winner, Brad Binder.

Xavi Vierge, on the other hand, was able to be triumphant in the Australian GP and to secure his second podium of the year, having fought for victory until the last lap. Thanks to that third place, he made a big step forward in the World Championship and now follows his teammate in eighth place with only five points behind.
