JEFFREY HERLINGS WITH KTM FOR 3 MORE YEARS<br />
   .... Honda and Kawasaki can think again<br />

KTM and Jeffrey Herlings have put everybody out of their misery with the announcement that the 20 year old Dutch kid will remain with Mattighofen until at least the end of 2017, thus ending all speculation that the other factories, in particular Honda and Kawasaki, would be getting involved in a bidding war for the Bullit's move to MXGP in 2016. The burning question to be resolved now is where will number 84 pit as he has made no secret of the fact that he does not envy riding out of Italy in the same camp as TC#222. Time will tell :D





EXTRATERRESTRIAL JERRE | 21.10.2014
EXTRATERRESTRIAL JERRE

The sensation of the 2014 season was Jeremy Van Horebeek. Immaculately clad in Ufo gear the Belgian brought Yamaha back into the GP limelight as he finished runner-up in the MXGP world series with his first victory at the highest level and a sensational run of twelve consecutive podiums. Feeling comfortable in a bike is not only down to the mechanical side but also the riding gear and the Jerre and Ufo have extended their contract into 2015 when they seek continued success as the Belgian displays again the quality of the Voltage line with its excellent ergonomic and aeration features. Check out the Ufo lines in plastics, protection and clothing by clicking on the banner above.

 .. Dylan Ferrandis US-bound with Kawasaki in 2017

Dylan Ferrandis will head Stateside after two more years in the MX2 world series. The 20 year old from southern France has inked a deal with Kawasaki which will see him switch to the Kawasaki Lites Team in the States in 2017/18 after chasing the world title with the re-named Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team, previously CLS, for the next two years. He gets a taste of US action @ Vegas this weekend.

IT'S OFFICIAL !<br />
RYAN VILLOPOTO TO RACE MXGP IN 2015<br />

It's been on the cards for months, but Kawasaki finally confirmed today that nine-times US champion Ryan Villopoto will contest the FIM MXGP World Championship for the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team in 2015. "I am ready for the next chapter in my career and to accomplish new goals," said Villopoto. MX2 world champ Jordi Tixier is also confirmed to bolt the number one plate to a KX250F in a renamed CLS squad.


HOME RULE | 26.09.2014
HOME RULE

Happiest faces at the marathon press conference this afternoon at Kegums were the home trio of Matiss Karro, Pauls Jonass and Roberts Justs, rightly described by their federation man Ivo Germanis as "the best team we have ever had for the Nations". 34 teams will line up for tomorrow's qualification in dry but fresh weather. Earlier in the afternoon Giuseppe Luongo confirmed that the world team race will be at Ernee in France next year, Maggiora in Italy in 2016 and USA in 2017.

IT'S GONNA BE TIGHT | 14.09.2014
IT'S GONNA BE TIGHT

"I only did as much as I needed to yesterday. I haven't forgotten how to jump." That was the defiant war cry from Jeffrey Herlings this morning. The MX2 champion inevitably looked stiff and was 17th, still four seconds off the last of the GP regulars, in warm-up; his weakness was the middle split, a mixture of big jumps and cambered turns. Tixier, making the difference to the rest through the combinations of the final split, was again fastest by half a second but there's still all to play for !


SANDBAGGING ? | 13.09.2014
SANDBAGGING ?

Was Jeffrey Herlings sandbagging today as he pulled off the track two laps into both timed training and MX2 qualification as Jordi Tixier dominated both sessions ? Anyone who has seen him dragging the leg with a rod and screws in the thigh around today would not think so, and, one day after his 20th birthday, the Bullit didn't launch over a single tabletop - and there are plenty - all day ! Looks grim for his hopes of a third world title, but never say never about the kid with the biggest heart in motocross !



SLOW BULLIT | 13.09.2014
SLOW BULLIT

Jeffrey Herlings didn't contest free practice and was the slowest rider in either class by 16 seconds in timed training as he returned to action, whilst an immaculate Jordi Tixier topped MX2 by half a second, but don't jump to conclusions yet ! FIM MX chief Tony Skillington: "The rule book is open to interpretation on what a rider must do on Saturday, and in the past we have had cases of riders missing the qualification race and starting the GP. However, with the world title at stake, I am concerned to remove any doubt about Herlings' eligibility to race, so I have advised KTM that he should ride at least one lap of timed training and go to the start of the qualification race." At least the Mexicans, each more than ten seconds off the pace were safe from exclusion as wobblers.

222+2 TONI CAIROLI THE EIGHTH | 07.09.2014
222+2 TONI CAIROLI THE EIGHTH

Toni Cairoli has clinched his eighth world title with a charging ride to fifth in the opening MXGP moto at Trindade. Jeremy Van Horebeek, his only remaining rival, bravely lined up with a heavily swollen foot and was rewarded with 13th, not enough to stop the Sicilian clinching his 6th straight premier world title, but sufficient to ensure himself of the series silver medal. The Jerre will now return to Belgium to get his foot injury seen to and will miss Mexico next week. Max Nagl took another gate to chequered flag moto victory, but the day belongs to TC#222 + 2 !

SHAUN SIMPSON THIRD TO THE GATE IN BRAZIL | 06.09.2014
SHAUN SIMPSON THIRD TO THE GATE IN BRAZIL

Shaun Simpson goes to the gate third in tomorrow's GP of Goias in central Brazil after a stunning ride from midpack .... and the Scot was chased at arm's length all the way by Tommy Searle, returning to action with a fifth. Max Nagl led all the way, but the title candidates were both in trouble. Toni Cairoli lost a lens in his goggles on lap two and was riding almost blind for a couple of laps before rebounding for 10th, his cause aided when Jeremy Van Horebeek lost second after pulling out with a sprained ankle. MX2 was even more dramatic as Jordi Tixier started poorly, fell on lap two and was no better than 11th at the chequered flag with Romain Febvre winner and Max Anstie 8th. But the absent Jeffrey Herlings needn't celebrate too quickly - Tixier set the fastest laps of the race !
