How Herlings got back to winning ways

Seven months after he last raced, five-times world champ Jeffrey Herlings shows he’s back in the game after winning two of the three motos at the Hawkstone Park International, including the Superfinal. Battling against Glenn Coldenhoff, Romain Febvre, Pauls Jonass, Alberto Forato, Jeremy Seewer, Isak Gifting, Brent Van Doninck and more, The Bullet brought the factory KTM home fourth in the opening moto as holeshot man Febvre won from Coldenhoff and Jonass.

But second time out Herlings took the holeshot and fended off Coldenhoff all the way to the flag – although the two second places gave the new Fantic factory rider the official MX1 overall.

Then in the combined MX1 and MX2 Superfinal, Herlings started well and was soon at the front, dominating the race despite continued attacks from Coldenhoff. In the MX2 class, world champ Andrea Adamo dominated both motos on the punishing sand track he’d never raced on before. With Cas Valk second overall from Hakon Ostehagen, Adamo also was top MX2 rider in the Superfinal to make it a clean sweep.

With a cast of top riders including Adam Sterry, Henry Jacobi, Roan Van De Moosdijk, Josh Gilbert, Joel Rizzi, Brad Anderson, Jake Nicholls and a crowd of thousands, if was a stunning start to the 2024 UK race season.
