Herlings - British Champs

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Jeffrey Herlings told us last weekend he will do more of the British motocross championship round. One before Indonesia and one after Indonesia. Having won the two rounds, he has ridden so far, he is leading the championship points and also picked up some new sponsors in Dirt Store, who also sponsor the series and many of the top riders.

“I am going to do the next round of the British at Blaxhall on the 23rd of June and then Foxhill on the 14th of July, so two British rounds before and after Indonesia. We confirmed that this weekend. That isn’t confirmed yet (to do all the rounds of the British series), but I would love to, and I think it might happen.

“At the moment just Blaxhall and Foxhill for now. I can’t, because if I want to do the British, those are on our off weekends. I really enjoy doing the British, I mean, last week was at Canada Heights and it was such a good track. Those tracks are so much fun and Foxhill is one of the best tracks I have ever raced at. I really enjoy it and I like the competition there and they really respect me.”

Speaking with Tommy Searle last week and he mentioned he and Herlings went out for dinner and had a great time together. A long way from their bitter Grand Prix battles of the past.

“Yes, actually, me and Tommy used to fight for the championships, and we could have drunk each other’s blood, but now we are really good friends and whenever I come to England, he does his vlogs and always has me in them, it’s fun. I really enjoyed that, me Tommy and some of his friends. I also have a new sponsor with Dirt Store now that I race more in England, so I really would like to do all the rounds.”
