Herlings out of Italy

Posted on June 13, 2018

Red Bull KTM Factory rider Jeffrey Herlings will miss the Italian Grand Prix after breaking his collarbone and two ribs today in a practice crash. More later.

Herlings will have surgery to repair a break to his right collarbone after a crash while practicing at Berghem in Holland today. 

The 23 year old is scheduled for a procedure at renowned surgeon Dr Claes’ clinic in the next few hours to fix a fracture near a plate that was inserted for a previous injury. 

It is extremely likely that the winner of 8 from 10 Grands Prix this season will miss this weekend’s Lombardia round at Ottobiano in Italy but then has a two week break before the Grand Prix of Indonesia on July 1st.
