It’s hard to argue with Jeffrey Herilngs as the MXGP world champ proclaims he is the fastest man on the planet in 2018!  The Dutchman dominated the world championship then won both his class motos at the MXoN on Sunday even if he ran out of time to catch teammate Glenn Coldenhoff in that historic final moto for Holland.

Herlings has taken to social media to make the announcement, and after the Americans constantly telling him Tomac would beat him at Red Bud, you can understand why he is allowed to brag a little! That’s now three times Herlings has defeated Tomac on his home turf.

Maybe now Tomac will repay the favour and race Herlings at Assen at the MXoN, or even better, make the move to MXGP to find out where he really stands.

But as Herlings says, “ everything will start over next year.”

  1. He sure is. Maybe he should be more modest, he has no need to brag, even if his hapiness is understandable. After all, no one doubts he is the fastest. Not just the fastest, but the most dominating rider since Ricky Carmichael. ..Although he wasn’t the fastest in the final race of the year.
