Jeffrey Herlings will join Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee Motocross Team to assist in his rehabilitation back into the sport following his unfortunate foot injury back in January. It is anticipated that Herlings will make guest appearances with the Team in selected events prior to competing in any 2019 MXGPs. As Milwaukee are now a co sponsor of both Roger Magee’s Team and Herlings, it is this partnership which has made this situation possible.
Herlings has admitted he may make his comeback in GPs at Mantova on May 12, and a week before that is the British championship at the sandy Canada Heights venue. In the past, Herlings has admited he’s seen the track and would like to race there.
Robert Vos of Milwaukee said: “We are really pleased to announce today in Valkenswaard our collaboration with Jeffrey Herlings as part of our long term strategy with the sport of Motocross. This relationship enhances our commitment to Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee Motocross team and we look forward to our long term partnership developing over the years to come.”
Roger Magee of Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee stated” “We have assisted with the negotiations between Milwaukee and Jeffrey over the past few months so that the fastest Motocrosser in the World is now part of the Milwaukee “family” with their increasing investment in Motocross. We look forward to Jeffrey joining our Team at selected events to fully represent KTM and all of the sponsors.”
Jeffrey Herlings confirmed “ I am super-pumped to become associated with such a major brand as Milwaukee and look forward to continuing with my rehabilitation from injury so that I can get back on the circuits just as soon as possible.”
