Herlings to race in Italy this weekend?
Jeffrey Herlings was set to contest the three rounds of the International Italian Championship as a warm up for his rookie season in the MXGP World Championship but he picked up a wrist injury which ruled him out for the first two rounds.
However, Herlings is on the entry list for the third round taking place this weekend and he tested at the track today so he is clearly back on the bike as you can see below:
It had been thought that Herlings wouldn’t take part in any pre-season races but it appears he will take part this weekend and they are saying he will participate.
Antonio Cairoli has been the main man at the first two rounds of the series and is expected to win the title but this weekend will be the first time we see Gajser, Cairoli, Herlings and Febvre compete in the same class in 2017.
It is very exciting times, there is no doubt Herlings will want to prove a point and win this weekend heading into Qatar.
