Herlings angry at Seewer and Everts!
Jeffrey Herlings was not happy after the second moto with Jeremy Seewer.
In his post race interview he mentioned Seewer, who battled Herlings for the win, tried to clean him out and that he believed it was coming from Everts. (Herlings former team manager).
Herlings and Everts had a very public fall – out at KTM and Herlings believes Stefan wants Seewer to take him out.
Herlings then added that it was all even more motivation to beat Everts’ records because, “I don’t like him.”
Now Herlings has released a statement on Facebook explaining the incident with Seewer in more detail.
Herlings said: “Racing is racing. And everyone should defend there position and fight for it as hard as they can. But bringing another rider ( me ) today in danger is a different story. Jumping towards my direction in the air is VERY DANGEROUS!! As when you are in the air you can not change direction anymore. So thats why my reaction on Seewer after the 2nd moto was to him ” Why the hell you cut me off towards the jumps, are you crazy “?! Maybe he doesnt know, or didnt notice himself, those are questions I can not answer. But because he came my direction just before take off on the triple step up I had to close the gas last second, and came very short and hurt both ankle’s very bad and allmost went down. If I wouldnt of done that I would of had jumped on his back SEVERAL of times and we both would of went down. I had couple of serious injuries the last 2 years and people who had the same things as I would understand why I get frustrated when other riders take this beautiful sport towards a even more dangerous level as it allready is. But anyways, We won both moto’s for yet another overall win. There is just one thing on my head, and thats beating that 101 Gp wins, and congratulations to @antoniocairoli for your well disurved win. Lets keep puting Orange on top. Go go go keyboard warriors for your opinions.”
