Speed Demon: Young Motocross Star Jeffrey Herlings Opens World Championship Season In Dominating Form
Jeffrey Herlings picked up right where he left off…in epic form. The Dutch teen and defending MX2 Class World Champion, who dazzled International motocross fans last season by lapping every single rider at the series’ Lierop stop, got right back at it with an emphatic MX2 win in Quatar to open up his 2013 campaign. The freakishly fast rider, considered the best on the planet in the sand, grabbed victory by a stunning 25 seconds.
Forza Fernando! Formula 1 Superstar Alonso Poised to Charge for Title With New Ferrari F138 and ‘Olympic-Level Physical Training’
It’s indisputable. Fernando Alonso’s stunning performances were the most impressive of the 2012 Formula 1 season. Even with a car that most agreed was not the fastest on the grid. Racking up shocking victories with his sheer talent and skill, Oakley’s two-time World Champion was on the brink of his third – even with his team’s sluggish start to the 2012 year. But charging into the 2013 season with Scuderia Ferrari’s newly designed F138 car, the international superstar driver is more than glowing with optimism. As he should be. The Spanish phenom – armed with Ferrari’s latest, bleeding edge technical masterpiece – is poised to come out of the gates like a bat out of hell.

O’s long-time driver/owner spent a few hours with the victims – some of who were listed as critical upon their arrival at the hospital – to provide comfort and some signed gear.
