Herlings on his Oss injury: I’ve got no words for this!

A very frustrated Jeffrey Herlings has already commented on his injury during the first MXGP moto at Oss. The Factory KTM rider confirmed that his start device didn’t pop out and because of that he lost some drive but Monticelli was already committed and in the air and landed on Herlings shoulder. 

The four time world champion confirmed he will get further tests done tomorrow and he will be hoping to get some good news so he can line up at Loket next weekend for round five of the series.  

“I’ve got no words for this. I played it so smart this year, I took 0 risk and did everything according to plan this season. I was almost in the championship lead and then this…… As you can see on the uphill the starting device didn’t pop out yet, so I lost a bit balance because of it, but what the hell was he thinking??
I can’t believe I still won the moto with a broken shoulder blade. The pain was unreal, I had tears in my eyes the whole moto from the pain. I’m so sorry for my great team, @ktmfactoryracing I am so gutted. The bike was once again like a rocket. Tomorrow we’ll check further how bad the damage is and when we will be able to return to racing. Thanks to my sponsors for keep believing in me. Had to dig deep for this one”, Herlings stated on social media.
