KTM confirm Herlings ruled out of Oss moto two

Jeffrey Herlings got landed on during the opening lap of the first MXGP moto at Oss and remarkably still came back to win.

However, we are hearing from multiple sources at the circuit that Herlings has already left the track and has a shoulder injury as a result of getting landed on which makes his moto win even more remarkable.

We believe Herlings won’t race the second moto of Oss – more bad luck for the four time World Championship but we will continue to keep you updated as and when we hear more on the situation.

UPDATE: KTM have confirmed Herlings is ruled out of moto two due to a shoulder blade issue.
