    Jeffrey Herlings is fast. Almost too fast. Oakley’s Dutch Young Gun, continuing his utter dominance of the MX2 class all year long, was finally crowned with the World Title by comfortably owning both motos at the GP of Europe at Faenza (Italy). The 17-year-old ripper, first taking the win in the qualifiers with ease, didn’t let up in any way all day long – charging through both Holeshots with reckless abandon to an emphatic overall victory. The result was his ninth GP triumph on the season…with just as much style as ever. “I had many ups and downs during the whole season, but I managed to find the way to get through everything and win the title,” Jeff said, rocking his Oakley Crowbar MX Goggles. "I am really happy to have had my team behind me because they have been really supportive all the time.”
