Smets on Herlings

Joel Smets has talked about the injury to his rider Jeffrey Herlings. Lets hope Herlings is ok for the opening GP in Qatar.

“Jeffrey remains in his plaster until Monday. Then follows a new Medical checkup. His bikes will certainly be present for the first GP. The decision whether or not to ride can be postponed until the last moment depending on how Jeffrey feels. Last season Clément Desalle fought in the opening races of the GP’s true the pain to grab some points. And to ride himself back into shape. Not an ideal scenario, I can certainly advise that against Jeffrey to not do that. If you are not fit enough to ride, certainly at this level it does not make sense to start. I do not think that Herlings wants to do it, just to ride for a few points is definitely not his style.”
