JEFFREY HERLINGS ON HIS WAY

JEFFREY HERLINGS ON HIS WAY<br />
  ... to the showdown in Leon !

Even mechanic Rami Fält was awaiting the call from Jeffrey Herlings to say he was on his way to Mexico this weekend, but 20 minutes ago the Dutch still teenager - he'll be 20 on Friday - had not been given medical clearance. So Leon on Sunday will now be the showdown everyone has been waiting for between the Bullit and Jordi Tixier. Leading by 23 points, the defending champion needs 27 points - a 7th and an 8th - if the Frenchie wins both motos, less depending on the result. Only Herlings can wrap it in moto one - he needs to head his rival across the line by one place in the top four, by two places if lower-placed. Let's go !

NO FAVOURS FOR TIXIER

NO FAVOURS FOR TIXIER<br />
  ... Romain Febvre wins in Brazil

Romain Febvre gave Husqvarna its first GP win under KTM ownership after two dramatic motos at Trindade in which Jordi Tixier was made to fight for every point and, after a 5-4 day, still trails Jeffrey Herlings by 23 points going into the Mexican showdown at Leon next weekend. The defending world champion can thus control his own destiny; if he can score 27 points or more in Leon, then even a double win will not help Tixier. What a climax to the GP campaign !

HERLINGS OUT OF BRAZIL

HERLINGS OUT OF BRAZIL<br />
   UPDATED

Jeffrey Herlings will not be in Brazil, but even team staff on the road were in the dark this morning ! Jordi Tixier was at Guarulhos Airport in Sao Paulo this morning: "I don't know. Nobody told me anything. I'll wait and see if he's at the gate on Sunday."" Herlings mechanic Rami Falt was on the hopper to Goiania. What you doing this weekend, Rami ? "Who knows ?" If Tixier, 57 points back, can win the two remaining GPs this weekend in Brazil and next weekend in Mexico, then Herlings will need to podium in Leon; but four tenths would have clinched it if he rode both and the likelihood of that happening had been growing by the day. But KTM confirmed at dinnertime that he will not there and the word in the street now is that the Dutch teenager has an infection in his leg ... and might not even make Mexico ! The suspense grows.


JEFFREY HERLINGS IN BRAZIL ? | 28.08.2014
JEFFREY HERLINGS IN BRAZIL ?

Jeffrey Herlings' flights are booked for Mexico, but could the MX2 world champion already be on the plane to Brazil next week ? "The reha is progressing well, the doctors are amazed at the speed of Jeffrey's recovery and his plane ticket is booked for the final GP in Mexico," admitted KTM sports chief Pit Beirer this week. "Nothing is yet planned for Brazil, but I cannot rule it out." Read on ...

MAX WINS AT LAST | 03.08.2014
MAX WINS AT LAST

After a season of appalling mechanical misfortune Max Anstie has finally won his first GP at Lommel. He repeated his runaway win from Saturday qualification in the first moto, and second to Jordi Tixier in race two clinched the overall honours for Mighty Max and Steve Dixon's BikeIt Cosworth Yamaha team. Jeffrey Herlings was watching as the Frenchman's 3-1 day has narrowed the gap on series leader to 57 points with two GPs remaining.

OUT OF SIGHT :D

"I had a lot of thoughts through those last few laps, but the entire team has worked hard and when the combination is right ...." Max Anstie simply killed the opposition in MX2 quali at Lommel to pull seconds a lap on everybody for a 22 second win easing up. Mel Pocock battled from 20th to 13th and Shaun Simpson had podium pace as Toni Cairoli rode home a narrow win over Jeremy Van Horebeek in MXGP. Tommy Searle is absent, having gone home when his thumb injury failed a Thursday try-out.

CHASERS STAY CALM | 26.07.2014
CHASERS STAY CALM

The MX2 title chasers stayed calm today @ Loket as they prepared for the points chase tomorrow. Romain Febvre banged bars with Jose Butron for a couple of laps before scorching clear for the MX2 qualification win, while Jordi Tixier moved meticulously up the leaderboard for second. Only Dylan Ferrandis, who has to win six out of eight remaining motos, had trouble. but he showed great speed to recover from a first lap collision which left him trailed off the back of the pack for a sixth placed finish. There is everything to go for tomorrow as Jeffrey Herlings can only sit and home and watch through the next three GPs before his expected return for the Mexican showdown.

"KEEP YOR DISTANCE" :D | 25.07.2014
"KEEP YOR DISTANCE" :D

No pressure for Wayne Banks in the KTM factory awning this weekend as he prepares Jordi Tixier's SX250F meticulously as usual while Rami Fält can chill as his rider Jeffrey Herlings is back home with a broken thigh. "I asked Wayne if he needed any help, but he said he was OK," grinned the Finn. Left with nothing else to do, Rami then realised this was the perfect opportunity to dig out his camera and play paparazzi; after all, that lot in the press room never appear to be doing anything at the best of times LOL

CLARKEY'S NIGHTMARE | 12.07.2014
CLARKEY'S NIGHTMARE

An overzealous Sulivan Jaulin has placed Steven Clarke's relentless surge towards the EMX2 title in danger as the Frenchman pulled down a fistful of riders, including red plate holder Clarkey, at the first turn in the opening moto at Hyvinkää this evening. The Frenchie went into the turn too fast and dug in the front wheel as he tried to turn sharply; local Henric Stigell got dragged down too and Clarkey piled in so hard that he ended up ten yards down the track after going arse over tip. Getting back on almost last the Brit's adventures were still not over: "I was nearly back into the points on lap two when another rider went down in front of me." From dead last he eventually hauled back to 14th, but, with Brent Van Doninck winning from Brian Bogers and Ben Watson surging up the leaderboard to 4th and Adam Sterry 9th, a gaggle of riders have closed down Clarkey's lead to 20 points with three sand motos remaining.

THE RETURN OF THE CROCKSTAR | 27.06.2014
THE RETURN OF THE CROCKSTAR

Gordon Crockard makes a surprise return to the big time this weekend when he turns out for the injury-hit 24MX Honda team in the Belgian championship race at the classic Kester track 20 miles west of Brussels. The 35 year old Ulsterman has not raced this season but stll rides regularly: "They asked me already in April if I was interested to race the GPs but I had to explain that my work with the kids in the 150 European Championship meant that I was not available on those weekends." Gordy knows Kester, an old school ex-GP venue, well from his GP days, and, who knows, if he rides well and Steven Lettani's squad needs a GP man at short notice for the home GP of their main sponsor, Gordon is also no stranger to Uddevalla, having been a GP winner there in his heyday :D
