First blood to Herlings in British MXGP

The three favourites for the world championship title filled the podium in the opening MXGP or 2020, the British GP at Matterley Basin. Jeffrey Herlings took the overall win with a clear win in the opening moto, and a distant second place in the finale.

And world champ Tim Gajser, who came through to eighth in the opener after crashing on the opening lap then again on the final lap, cleared off to win the second moto by a huge margin to take runner-up spot.

Herlings showed a new maturity

And nine-times world champ Tony Cairoli was third overall, with a great third in race two behind Herlings. His first moto was not as spectacular but he still took fourth.

It was a day of mixed results for many of the top riders, such as Jeremy Seewer who took second in the opening moto, and Mitch Evans who was third. Second time out they were eighth and seventh respectively.

Adam Sterry also had a poor start in the first moto, and took 21st overall. Jake Millward failed to score.
