HERLINGS OUT OF QATAR ?
UPDATE FROM KTM 16.02.2017 | 14.02.2017
HERLINGS OUT OF QATAR ?<br />
  UPDATE FROM KTM 16.02.2017

Jeffrey Herlings' 2017 season lasted just one and a half laps before he flew over the bars superman-style @ Ottobiano on Sunday. It appeared initially that the bike and his pride had suffered the most damage, but this dinnertime the Dutch Bullet posted a video of his right arm and hand in plaster to just below the elbow with the message "seriously fucked up" "getting ready for Qatar in two weeks time". The full extent of the injury is as yet unclear, but KTM rider manager Joel Smets confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that "Jeffrey stays in plaster until Monday for sure, then he will be examined again. His bikes will be in Qatar but a decision in whether he can race will not be made until the last minute." Practice in Losail gets underway in 10 days time !

FLYING THE FLAG

FLYING THE FLAG<br />
   for two-strokes !

Bravo Denmark ! The home of bacon butties has done it again ! As of 2017 250cc two-strokes will be able to compete on EQUAL terms with all those poxy four-strokes in MX2 at all grades of competition up to and including the national championship. In the past Denmark has set a precedent for 2-strokes as one of the first countries to re-introduce the 125cc 2-stroke class as a stepping-stone class long before the FIM put down their wine glasses and actually did something useful for the sport. Lobby your local organisers/delegates/federations, tell them that someone has the balls to act decisively and get those smokers back on the line on EQUAL terms in competition from club level to national titles and hopefully in the end to MX2-GP. Win that war and who knows .. CR500s in MXGP ?

20 GPs in 2017 | 15.10.2016
20 GPs in 2017

Wholesale upgrades, and an increase not just from 18 to 19 but to 20 GPs in 2017, are the latest developments on the GP calendar which hopefully is now set in concrete. Certainly Booking.com was busy as hell yesterday as teams rushed to save rooms for next year. Uddevalla was already back on the Provisional list in June, but Russia and Portugal are added and there no less than NINE date changes ! Charlotte is confirmed, but is on the list to race Sunday and the Matterley Nations is now confirmed for September 30/October 1. WMX venues have also been changed, and no news yet on who now races where in the Euros. Full list, with amendments in heavy type, at "More"

TIMBO OUT OF VEGAS | 10.10.2016
TIMBO OUT OF VEGAS

Tim Gajser is out of the Monster Cup in Vegas after a couple of crashes in race two at the SMX Cup aggravated the injuries which kept him out of the Nations; after keeping it under wraps for nearly three weeks Honda has finally admitted that the Slovenian cracked his right collarbone whilst testing the 2017 CRF450 on the Wednesday before Maggiora. It has now been admitted that his injuries were worse than initially revealed, the MXGP world champion having sustained "heavy bruising and swelling to his right hip and shoulder, but also suffering a small crack in his right collarbone" last month.

HOT PROSPECT | 04.08.2016
HOT PROSPECT

Scott have released their new Prospect goggles; the new range features a host of new innovations with no compromise on quality. The first claim of the Swiss-based firm is the largest field of vision on the market and a new four pin locking system, together with a 25% increase in lens thickness to improve stiffness and combat situations when lenses can pop out. Comfort is also high on the agenda with the use of thermofoam to absorb sweat while as softer material is used on the nose. Scroll down to learn more.

HERLINGS v FERRANDIS | 05.06.2016
HERLINGS v FERRANDIS

The Dylan Ferrandis-Jeffrey Herlings feud exploded to new proportions in the second MX2 moto at St Jean D'Angely today as the Frenchman blatantly took out the Dutchman as they left the gate, almost taking him into the pit box wall in the end before thinking about his own race. In doing so Ferrandis surrendered the holeshot to Max Anstie and Jeremy Seewer, but by the time the pack headed uphill from turn one Ferrandis was out of contention for the second time in a day - he had run into the back of Herlings halfway down the straight in race one - and Herlings, though outside the top 20, was on his way to yet another double win, scorching through the pack to take the lead from Anstie within just a few laps. Scroll down to see the photo sequence !

JORGES GARDENS | 27.05.2016
JORGES GARDENS

It's all part of the job in MXGP for the riders to head into town on Friday afternoon for a "meet 'n' greet" with the local dignitaries plus an autograph session for the local kids. The Talavera show was the city centre Jardines del Prado, so who better to claim lead billing than KTM junior Jorge Prado ? The teams are ready for action over the weekend, and the long range forecast of rain will hopefully be just a few drops on Saturday on the elevated Spanish plain.

SO CLOSE | 02.05.2016
SO CLOSE

With a perfect six GPs and 12 motos already secure Jeffrey Herlings is already being touted as the 2016 MX2 world champion, but the Dutch youngster himself is more held back on the theme: "There's still a long way to go; I already lost two world titles and anything can happen. A start crash for example and it could be all over." And at Kegums he was soooo close .... TWICE ! A shunt from Dylan Ferrandis nearly cost him in race two, but the Bullit kept it pinned to even save the holeshot. And race one was potentially even more disastrous: "I suddenly got wheelspin and was close to turning through 180 degrees." The cat-like Herlings saved it ... but it was this close !

IN THE SHADOW OF THE MARTYRS | 16.04.2016
IN THE SHADOW OF THE MARTYRS

Overseas GPs relish the Friday presentations in the same way a bit of colour was the norm half a century back in Europe. The Leon showground was in the shadow of the Calzada de los Heroes, situated at the end of a tree-lined boulevard with water fountains at its feet and erected 123 years ago to celebrate the heroes of the revolution. There was refreshing turnout of modern day heroes, and we couldn't resist a snap of the Anstie family to celebrate the occasion.
